Change Is Everything
She looked at you with a big smile. A smile that you could remember for days to come. She said she’s happy. She said that everything is going to be okay. But a little voice inside of her head is saying change. Call her selfish but she wants what she wants. After all, isn’t this the time to be selfish? Isn’t this the time we can never take back because we’ll never be young again? Isn’t this the time we have to change who we are, what we want, and our dreams? But a huge part inside is holding her back. From what her parents want, to what he wants and she wants for her. Stop. Breathe. And listen to your heart.
"For myself I am too heavy, and for you too light."
— Franz Kafka, Letters to Milena (via larmoyante)
Open Minds, Open Hearts
She looks at the world with an open mind and an open heart. There are no limits to her dreams but yet her dreams seem so far away from what she knows inside of her heart. Day by day it becomes more clear of what she wants to become but not who she can become. She knows the reality of the world. She knows she can’t have everything she wants. She knows there is the good and bad and in between. Sometimes it’s hard to let go of the things holding her down but she has to commit and make a choice for herself.
"Associate with the noblest people you can find; read the best books; live with the mighty; but learn to be happy alone."
— Saul Bellow, Ravelstein (via observando)
