legend says, when you can't sleep at night,
it's because you're awake in someone else's dream.
happiness is looking into the eyes of someone you love and realizing
that the look in their eyes is the same one you have in yours.
i am just living my life and being the best version of a woman i can be.
i am not always going to please everyone. at the end of the day, the only
person i should be answering to is myself. you have to speak your mind.
don't let anyone talk you out of being you.

everyone says that love hurts, when in reality love doesn't actually hurt.
love didn't leave for someone else, it didn't cheat on you, nor did it
break your heart. so stop blaming love for once and start blaming
that asshole that treated you like shit and gave you up.
i want a reaction. i want you to do something about this. i am tired
of wondering if you feel the same way. i just wish i could tell you how i feel,
to either set the ball in motion, or end it all right here.
but holding people away from you, and denying yourself love, that doesn't make
you strong. if anything it makes you weaker, because you are doing it out of fear.

we all honor heroes for different reasons. sometimes for their bravery. sometimes
for their daring. Sometimes for their goodness, but mostly we honor heroes
because at one point or another we all dream of being rescued. of course,
if the right hero doesn't come along, sometimes we just have to rescue ourselves.
you reminded me of what I am capable of feeling. it is like i was
walking around, seeing my life through a smudged window, and
then i saw you, the smudges were gone. the window was clean.

all i have is one last chance i won't turn my back on you, take my hand,
drag me down. if you fall then i will too. and i can't save what's left of you.
love is a minefield. you take a step and get blown to pieces, puts yourself back
together again, and stupidly take another step. i guess that is human nature.
it hurts so much to be alone, that we would rather blow up than be single.

my heart, my thoughts, and my prayers are out to those who are
being affected by Hurricane Sandy.
stay safe, and i hope the power goes back on,
and i hope that everyone on the East Coast can make it through.
love you, always, xo
