Make the most of it now, before it all changes, because in the future, all of this is only going to be memories.

"It amazes me how easy it is for things to change, how easy it is to start off down the same road you always take and wind up somewhere new. Just one false step, one pause, one detour, and you end up with new friends or a bad reputation or a boyfriend or a breakup. It’s never occurred to me before; I’ve never been able to see it. And it makes me feel, weirdly, like maybe all of these different possibilities exist at the same time, like each moment we live has a thousand other moments layered underneath it that look different."

"At this age, everything is changing. Day by day we don’t notice, but just look back over the past year and you will realize everything has. People you thought were going to be there forever aren’t, and people you never imagined you’d be speaking to are now some of your closest friends. Life makes little sense, and the more we grow the less sense it will make. So make the most of it now, before it all changes once again, because in the near future, all of this is only going to be memories."

"That’s what life is about. Those moments when you feel entirely carefree, like nothing can touch you. It’s those moments that make the hard parts so worth it. It’s moments like that that make this heartache bearable. I know it’ll pass – my moments will come."

"The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people."

So today was a normal day. Well, it was until I wrote a post on Tumblr about how much I look forward to seeing Taylor Swift in less than 6 months and few minutes later this happened:

I can't even begin to describe how much this means to me. I loved Taylor for many years and just to be noticed by your favourite artist and someone you have been looking up to for all these years ... It is priceless. Taylor is such an amazing songwriter, singer and most of all, she is such an amazing person. Kind, loving, down to earth, always there for her fans (giving advice to her fans on Instagram and Tumblr, sending them gifts, inviting them to her houses for secret listening sessions, free meet&greets ... I mean, who does that?). She really is one beautiful human being and I am so happy for being noticed by her. 

What messes us up the most is the picture we have in our head of how it’s supposed to be.

Do you ever just fail at something you've been wanting to do for a long time? Do you just give up or do you pick yourself up and chase your dreams? I don't know what to do with my life at the moment. I'm so scared that I will fail again. I have a feeling that some things just aren't meant to happen. But I do believe that we create our own path. That if we work hard enough, we will reach our goals. But I almost gave up on my dream. To be honest, I'm scared to death to go after this one again. Although I want this to happen more than anything. I would never forgive myself if I didn't give it another (or third or fourth ...) try.

I miss you.

Exactly one year ago I had to say goodbye to the best dog ever. I will never forget all the beautiful moments we spent together. I miss how he would never leave my side, no matter what. How he would always be interested in meeting new kinds of animals (giraffes, camels, zebras, horses, deers, rats, rabbits, hamsters, birds, ...). How his best friends were stray cats living in the neighborhood, even though he never liked the cats he was living with (maybe because he had to share the bed with them). How bad his seizures have been sometimes. He never sat by the table waiting for someone to give him some food. He couldn't care less if we were eating. He knew me so well. He loved me no matter what. He was always so happy to see me. I miss my best friend.

“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.”
