So today I did absolutely nothing except face book, supposedly a waste of life, and the #1 way to totally disconnect from reality. Well anyways, during this time, I read a whole bunch of notes ppl wrote, and realized I don’t really write many notes. That was completely random and besides the point, hence the title of this note. Anyways, a lot, in fact, most of the notes were about self-realization during senior year of high school or freshman year of college. And some kinda made me sad and miss the past. This led to..well, more sadness and reminiscing. So I read ALL my old xanga entries today (tg I didn’t have xanga for TOO long, or I‘d never have been able to read them all) and a lot of quotations I’ve found from..around. Some made me smile, some me wanna cry. But I wanted to have all my favorite ones in one place so I could go back & look at them whenever I..you know, like felt like I needed to. So here they are. Feel free to comment.
life is way too short so: lay in the grass with your friends &count the stars;give without holding back;make a fool of yourself and dont even care; bake cookies for the one you love;ask someone to dance in the street with you;leave crazysweet voicemails for the ones you love;forgive when it seems impossible;forget the past and grab a hold of the future;dont let something that once made you happy slip through your fingers;give second chances because we’re only human;allow someone to teach you something valuable;apply it to your life;teach it to others;take a road trip and get lost;laugh until you cry;cry until you laugh;dont be afraid to admit your weaknesses;use your strengths;live in faith;live in the moments you cant have back;make mistakes and learn from them;take opportunities like they’ll never come again;and finally let go and dont be afraid to fall;because there will always be Someone there to catch you and put you back where you belong.
A sense of humor is a major defense against minor troubles.
a cockroach can live up to NINE days without its head before it starves to death
If I had my life to do over,
I’d have chosen you to be my dad
Even if it meant losing you again,
It’s worth all the tears in the
You were my sunshine when skies
I loved you and honored you;
You took all my tears away.
You were the bravest person I ever thought I knew.
I wanted so much to grow up knowing you;
I was happy to be with you,
Proud to be your little girl.
Sometimes we would argue,
But to me you meant the world.
Your love was always pure;
You treated me as your own.
Your time seemed all too short and
I feel so alone.You left me all alone;
You left me sad and scared.
You left me in our life for the dark and the unknown.
There was so much more with me that you could’ve shared;
You’ll never understand how important it is to me
To have had you here and have you see –
Of all I am and all I’m not.
I’m all grown- up… would you be proud of me through all I’ve fought?
You never worried about my first date,
Or yelled because I came home an hour late.
I’ll never see you turn to me and smile,
As you would walk me sadly down the aisle.
What can I take from this?
My heart is completely crushed.
But nothing loved is ever lost –
And you are loved so much.
Today before you think of saying an unkind word
Think of someone who can’t speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food
Think of someone who has nothing to eat .
Before you complain about your husband or wife
Think of someone who’s crying out to God for a companion.
Today before you complain about life
Think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before you complain about your children
Think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house; someone didn’t clean or
Think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job
Think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another
that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down
Put a smile on your face and thank God you’re alive and still
Life is a gift
And fulfill it.
And while you are at it give love to someone today
Love someone with what you do and the words you say
Love is not meant to be kept locked inside of us and hidden. So
give it away
“Give Love to someone today!”
Love… We think about it, sing about it, dream about it, lose sleep worrying about it. When we don’t have it, we search for it; when we discover it, we don’t know what to do with it; when we have it, we fear losing it. It is the constant source of pleasure and pain. But we can’t predict which it will be from one moment to the next. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, impossible to live without
The world is going to throw us a million reasons why this isn’t gonna work out between us, but I’m armed with the one reason why it will – I love you
You are what I never knew I always wanted ~Fools rush in
It’s YOU. You mean everything to me…you are the first into my head in the morning when I wake up, my last thought before I go to bed, you smile at me in my dreams, when you are sad I feel sad and when I see your true smile, I feel incredible, like there is no other thing around and all I can see is you. I think I love you, because when I think about being with you, I cant stop smiling.
being with you made me feel like for once in my life i wouldnt have to work so hard on being happy, that it could just happen.
When eagles forget how to fly, and it’s 20 below in July, and when violets turn red and roses turn blue, I’ll still be in love with you. – Brian Mcknight
And from that moment
There was never any doubt
I had found the one
That I had always dreamed about
did u know?: A 17 year old girl from Miami, Florida started to sneeze on 4th January’66 and continued till 8th June’66.
Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that people who have the most live the longest!
I’m not supposed to love you, I’m not supposed to care, I’m not supposed to live my life wishing you were there, I’m not supposed to wonder where you are or what you do, sorry I just couldn’t help myself, I fell in love with you.
See a penny, pick it up, and all day long, ull have…..just a penny!
About 100 people choke to death on ballpoint pens each year.

“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.”
When u reach the top and have lots of fame and fortune, DONT forget the ppl that helped u get there.
Dont work so hard that u never have time to stop and smell the roses.
When u die, the only thing left will b ur soul, so dont get so caught up in material progress and things such as money that u 4get the things that REALLY matter (family/friends, helping others, religion, etc.)
Life is TOO SHORT. Appreciate everything u have b/c u never noe wen it will be gone. Dont take the simple, everyday things (5 senses, family, education, food, etc.) in life 4 granted b/c not everyone has the good fortune of having them. Take advantage of EVERY OPPORTUNITY that comes ur way. Try new things, experience new feelings, and make new friends.
Laugh. Love. Smile. Make others smile. Live everyday as if it is ur last. Breathe every breath as if it is ur last.
Live life to the absolute fullest, and dont have ANY regrets b/c EVERY experience (good and bad) u’ve had has helped make u the person u r today. also, i think its much better to have bad experiences and learn from em than to not have any experiences at all. Most importantly, noe that ur life is only the way YOU c itm so ALWAYS see the glass half full, b/c it is NEVER half empty.
Without mean people, the only cause of death or sadness would be natural diseases and old age (and possible plane crashes or drownings), which i plan on becoming a nurse and helping to fix. There would be no war, violence, poverty, greed, theft, selfishness, or hatred if everyone was nice. There would be no unfairness, no suicide, even much less natural causes of sadness and death, and my mom would be happy. There would be no orphans, and everything would be great. But then again, that would be heaven wouldn’t it? I can only hope and wait, for the world to change, and the love to come back.
love is kind. it does not envy,
it does not boast, it is not proud. it is not
rude, it is not self-seekinq, it is not easily angered, it
keeps no records of wrong. love does not deliqht in evil
but rejoices with the truth. it always protects and trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres. love never fails. when i
was a child , i talked like a child, i thought like a child, i
reasoned like a child. when i became a woman, i put
childish ways behind me . now we see but a
poor reflection, as in a mirror; then we shall
see face to face. now i know in part;
then i shall know fully, even as i am
fully known . and now these
three remain; faith, hope
and love . but the
