promise yourself…

Turn on my heels/ step out of sight/ Try to live in a lovelier light
(Fiona Apple; Not About Love)


“Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”

Every day could be our last.
Today, instead of hating with all your heart,
Love with all you’re worth.
Instead of weeping until you can no more,
Laugh until you hurt.
Instead of being silent and unheard,
Sing the melody of a songbird.
And instead of taking all that you want,
Give all that you can.

Give your life story some exclamation points.
Give your life story some exclamation points!

We never said our love was evergreen or as unchanging as the sea
But if you can still remember, stop and think of me
(Phantom of the Opera)

You know love is everything you say
A whisper, a word, promises you give
You feel it in the heartbeat of the day
You know this is the way love is
(Enya, Amarantine)

Everything happens for a reason.
Even if it means not getting what you want.
Because in the end you realize…
It’s exactly what you needed.
