being confident gets you a lot further than second
guessing yourself, and wishing you were someone else.
your faith in yourself is all you will ever have.
don't let anyone take it away from you, ever.
+ Holly Marie Combs
stop saying you are sorry. you wanna know something? i knew,
i knew you didn't feel that way about me. i knew and i still let it happen.
because, well, i figured that one night with you was better than never.
so, will you stop saying you are sorry? because you didn't know better, but i did.
when did you become one of these women
who just waits, and is still waiting?
+ Something Borrowed
i start a fight because i need to feel something,
and you do what you want because i am not what you wanted.
it doesn't matter how long you have known each other, or how many
fights you got into. what matters in a true friendship is who said,
'i will be there if you need me' and proved it.
the art of argument is that if you argue correctly, you are never wrong.

the greatest irony of love:
loving the right person at the wrong time.
having the wrong person when the time is right.
and finding out you love someone right
after that person walks out of your life.
truth is like a mirror: you can fix it if it is broken,
but you can still see the crack in that mother fucker's reflection.
when you try your best, but you don't succeed. when you get what you want,
but not what you need when you feel so tired, but you can't sleep.
this is why you should never, ever get your hopes up. this is why you should
see the glass as half empty. so when the whole thing spills, you aren't as devastated.
+ Emily Giffin
if you are not happy with the person you are with, don't stay with them.
you are not magically going to wake up one morning and decide you
are going to be happy again. someone makes you that way.
find the someone that makes you happy.
the world is a roller coaster and i am not strapped in.
maybe i should hold with care, but my hands are busy in the air.
don't feel stupid if you don't like what everyone else pretends to love.
+ Emma Watson
when someone apologizes to you enough times for the things
they will never stop doing. i think it is fearless to stop believing them.
it is fearless to say, 'you are not sorry'. and walk away.
to live in this world, you must be able to do three things:
to love what is mortal, to hold it against your bones knowing your
own life depends on it and, when the time comes to let it go, let it go.
you never got used to it, the idea of someone being gone.
just when you think it is reconciled, accepted, someone points it
out to you and it just hits you all over again.
+ Truth about Forever, Sarah Dessen
sometimes, the person you would take a bullet
for ends up being the one behind the gun.
people will always have their opinions of you
despite of who you are, and what you are capable of.
the mirror can lie, it doesn't show you what is inside,
and that is the part that counts.

hope your weekend was nothing short of fabulous! :)
Oh, and Mexico is great! The weather is wonderful.
it's hot but not humid, so surprisingly I don't feel like I'm dying like I do back in Illinois :)
