I’m so blessed with these friends & family. All the notes & cards & pictures & movie tickets that bombarded my memories tonight. I could not have asked for anything better in my night. Lots & lots of unnecessary tears, but still amazing memories. And I found the last night my grandma ever gave me. I miss you to the moon and back G. And I don’t think I’ll ever fully get over you leaving this planet, but I know you’re smiling down in the heavens.
She’s not like that. She knows better. She knows that people lie, and promises can be broken as quick as they are made. She understands that she might never be loved, and too quickly good things fly in front of your eyes before you can reach out and grab them. She knows that you can’t change or help time, so every now and then it will just run out. There isn’t a place for every one in the world, so if you’re standing alone for awhile, that’s why. Not everything in life comes easy, but when you work the hardest, that’s when it’s the best. You can’t always expect people to care, and even when your best friends stab you in the front, don’t think for one minute that they didn’t already aim for your back. They missed for a reason. She has found out too soon, that in the end, you are your own best friend. Everyone will be broken at some point in their life and more often than not, it’s gonna hurt like hell. But you can’t stop it. You can’t change your fate. Somethings are meant to be and all the pain you go through will end up resulting in something huge. You don’t know what it is, and when it happens, it will hit you like a ton of bricks. At some point, when you have experienced everything you can, the words ‘life’ and ‘risk’ won’t mean anything to you anymore. But don’t try and change that. Shit like that is meant to happen. Overtime, certain things no longer have an affect on you. And that happens because that’s the way it’s supposed to be. But you’ll learn all that later in life when little things like a sunrise or a spring rain start to matter. But it might catch you off guard.
For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don’t enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that you’re not going to be very happy. If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn’t going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness. -Andy Rooney
