“People get stuck in moments. Hearts break and don’t fix easy. Love is nothing easy. It is not cheap. It is the greatest thing that happens on this planet, and so it comes priced as gold. One of my best friends used to sing the words “love is war”. There is the fight for holding on. And the fight for letting go. The hardest thing I have ever experienced is the learning which and when. But I still say it’s worth it, that love is real and possible. There are things worth fighting for, and love is at the top of the list.”—(via runawaytrain) (via itsjustmeagainsttheworld)
Is possibly one of the most wonderful things we could call our own. My mom used to snap at me when i was younger: Stop dreaming!
But i like dreaming.
Of possibilities, and new worlds i conjure up in my head with colors so intense, it could never be captured in ink. I like thinking about the future, and what i wish i could have, and what might actually be possible for me to attain in my lifetime.
When i have a child of my own, i am going to tell her to shut her eyes, and dream. Dream of all the possibilities and of this world in its entirety. Dream of all the different types of love that might exist in this reality. Dream of all the things she could be, and would like to be.
And when her eyelids flip open… i am going to tell her to try. Just try, to make as many of those dreams she dreamed about, come true.
When she comes running to me one day, telling me she did it; even if it’s something as small as folding her first paper crane - I’ll be the proudest mom in the world.
Because i know that she made her first dream come true…and she’ll never stop trying from there on.
Hearing guys talk about their girlfriends. Whether it was about this eccentric habit she had, or how amazing she was as a person… it’s just nice. You know? To hear what they’ve been thinking from inside their hearts.
