I've created & kept this blog to compile the thoughts, dreams and wisdom that I've discovered from others or merely written myself. This blog is, in a sense, an expression of everything that is me.. Whether I wrote it or not. The most recent entries are a series of quotes, lyrics and videos.. But travel back through the archives and you'll delve deep into my heart, through my own words.

To those who I've quoted or borrowed from: Thank you for being beautiful.. for deeply inspiring me in one way or another. I hope you find that I've used your material in an appropriate fashion.. I try always to cite my sources. I take NO credit for that which is not my own.

April '07 (part 1)

Thank god for...

amazing friends who pick you up at 4:30 in the morning so you don't sit alone and get miserable. who come bearing a bag of chocolate kisses and cookies because we all know how much it helps to have comfort foods when you are upset. who then drive you to the Causeway and talk to you for an hour or two to help clear your head and make things seem better than they are. who let you cry as much as you need to, and talk about everything and nothing, just to get your thoughts out. just to have someone there to listen to you. who buy you red bull and smoke a pack of cigarettes with you just to calm your nerves and get all the stress out of your system. who then drive down to the beach and visit spots that they need to go to, and then drive you down to the other end of the beach to walk along the water with you like an old couple as the sun comes up. even though it's hard because that spot on the beach totally brings back a flood of memories, and it's pretty painful. but thank god for amazing friends who won't let you be alone when you are upset and freaking out because they know that things will be better, and they love you to pieces. who leave you in a much more positive a mood... even if your heart is still quite devastated. who try to justify why things happen... and give you the reality of things, while still trying to give you hope. who climb into holes in the sand and carve their names with you just so you have a cute new background for your phone... one that won't make you so sad. who drive you back to your house 4 hours after picking you up, and laugh with you at the swarm of people on your roof tearing off tiles, and then wait outside to make sure you get in safe and are able to shower at your own house. who, overall, are the most rare people in the entire world, but i am blessed to have in my life.

thank you so, so much.

"There are people in my life who give me comfort. When the going gets tough, as it invariably does, I can count on them for a shoulder to cry on - they will lift me up when I fall, they will hold me in their arms as I cry and tell me, "Everything's going to be okay." I am so thankful for those people. They are priceless."
