A life that is planned is a life that is closed, my friend. It can be endured, perhaps, but it cannot be lived.
-The Inn of the Sixth Happiness
A quote from one of my top favorite movies. The story of a woman who didn’t believe in cramming religion down peoples throats. But rather sincerly interested in loving people. Giving those that were hungry, food. And those who thirst, drink.
Let’s All Toast to Something I was Burned By
“Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.” - Hitch
The title is not indicative by all accounts of the quote. I’m just in a hurt mood while also very aware that I fuckin love this quote. It’s what I thought life was all about. Just sometimes people tend to refuse to let you be you. So to anyone who’s going through the same thing, I say screw them! And fuckin be yourself. You’re not perfect. Allow yourself to evolve into the person you want to be.
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny. What we think, we become.” - The Iron Lady
Change comes with life. Remember, a beautiful vase wasn’t that way all the time. And that pot that helps gives you food and drink?…used to be a pile of mud and goo. Sure it’s hard and frustrating to get to a point where you are what you were striving to be.
But don’t give up.
Even when others have given up on you.
NEVER give up.
