“There’s a moment, there’s always a moment, ‘I can do this, I can give into this, or I can resist it’, and I don’t know when your moment was, but I bet you there was one.”
Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people in the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them, they’ve got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.
It’s too easy for me to blame other people or external circumstances for how I behave, but the obvious truth is that I am always in control of it. Someday, I’m going to collect stories of interesting strangers that I might meet as I go through this journey called life. I believe good things happen every day. I believe good things happen even when bad things happen. And I believe, on a happy day like today, we can still feel a little sad. That’s life, isn’t it?
Do not concern yourself with things you cannot control. Cry when you need to, then let go when it’s time. Stop taking things for granted. Stop taking life for granted. Live for something. Live for yourself. Fall in love. Fall out of love. Fall in love. Fall out of love. Do this over and over until you know what it really is to love someone. Question things. Tell people how you really feel. Share something wonderful. Meet new people. Make someone’s day. Follow your dreams. Live your life to its full potential. Just live. Let go of all the horrible things in your life and just live.
Who we are is made up of moments like that.
