what i want


I want to be in control.  I want to be proud of my choices.  I want to be an informed, but understanding person.  I want to be genuine and honest but be able to give wonderful compliments.  And I want those compliments to mean the world.

I want to be surrounded by people that inspire me – not in the most profound ways – but maybe just once in a while, with one little thing.  I want to be able to notice little things about people and appreciate those little things.

I want to be able to appreciate the smallest things.  I don’t want this to come from me trying to notice the little things, but I just want to be genuinely overjoyed by some of the small facts of life. 

When I “waste time” I want to be enjoying myself and not just avoiding doing something else.  I want to be proud that I’m taking the time out of my work to enjoy myself.

fooled again

it's crazy to think that the people who you expect the least from come through, sometimes even more than the people you think the most of.

i'm sorry that someone could treat you so poorly
you're not the only one that trusted them - i did too

i can't make you

it's a hard adjustment,
and that's an understatement

being with lisa again made me understand that i surrounded myself with the same people for 6 years.
we established basically our entire personalities on each other.
and now, im surrounded by people who weren't a part of that

im forced to take a leap of faith that i'm not willing to make
how can i

how can i have blind trust.

simple moments

"1. When my favorite song is playing on the radio as soon as I start the car.
2. When I find money in my pockets that I had forgotten about.
3. When I’m not feeling well and realize I have absolutely nowhere to be.
4. When my mom mispronounces technological devices.*
5. When drivers thank me for letting them pass or turn in front of me.
6. When I untangle a stubbornly knotted necklace.
7. When I catch my boyfriend smiling at me sweetly for no reason.
8. When I dress perfectly for temperamental weather.
9. When I climb under covers that have been freshly washed.
10. When the lights first dim at the beginning of a movie."
