“When you have a good friend that really cares for you and tries to stick in there with you, you treat them like nothing. Learn to be a good friend because one day you’re gonna look up and say I lost a good friend. Learn how to be respectful to your friends, don’t just start arguments with them and don’t tell them the reason, always remember your friends will be there quicker than your family. Learn to remember you got great friends, don’t forget that and they will always care for you no matter what. Always remember to smile and look up at what you got in life.”—Marilyn Monroe (via lealegria)
It’s taken me a while actually to gather some thought on what to Tumblr next until one night alone in my cozy apartment on a cold sixty degree day night when the t.v. was my background noise and I heard the above saying, now it’s not quoted because, well, my memory sucks at times and I don’t remember all the details so I think that’s what was said if I’m not mistaken, however I love it; it sums up a lot for me, the things and trying times I have encountered lately and through the year, which has been one that I will remember, with changes in my career, love encounters, and family life, all for the good of course.
Needless to say I am beginning to let go of my sad stories and let them fade away with the starry nights and the coming sun, I feel me, for the first in a while, I’m living for me creating my future for my well-being, damn it feels good; I have loved and I will continue to love until my heart is whole and my soul is pleased, but I am refusing to be hurt, at least for now.
The pain has gone away and it’s refreshing, a new life ready to be adventurous and see stuff and do what I want when I want is how I’m feeling; free as the bird I have tattooed on my back, time does heal and whoever said it first they deserve cookies and milk, chocolate milk if you leave it to my nephew who is growing like a weed and will shortly be bigger than me; even he has grown and changed through the year, change is good and for most, which I mean myself, it has been much needed and couldn’t have came at a better time, at least that’s what I’m sticking with.
I’m becoming more inspired than ever except this procrastination thing, yea, I haven’t come up with a strategy to put an end to that, it’s better but still prevalent, oh well I’ve become a pro at it and that will sure fade too when I’m ready, within my sad stories; staying positive I’m, a little more, motivated, content, and eager, which I think is most important, to have a dream that begins with the sun, after the dreams of the night before fade, you must have urgency and eagerness to go after them you have to want more, then you go do it, that’s pretty straight forward and drenched with common sense.
So now that I’ve shared some and showed off my professionalism at procrastination I will continue my work at this peaceful quiet, except for my cat’s nose whistling, chilly early morning hour, as the sad stories of those who are now sleeping fade away and drift into the starry sky, the day will bring nothing but chance, the chance to change, the chance to grow, the chance to love, the chance to be you.
