Somewhere Over the Rainbow

It's interesting when you miss something. Or someone. And you wake up with that ache deep in your heart. But the thing is, you can't pin point it. You don't know who you miss or why you miss them. You just feel a little bit empty. And you don't know why. All you can do is hope they miss you, too, whoever they are.

Believe you are a once-in-all-history event . . .
"Be faithful to that which exists nowhere but in yourself."

That About Sums It Up . . .

Good Morning, Heartache.

There are those times in life where everything is going so great you wonder how anything could go wrong. And then, all of a sudden, you stop short only to catch your breath and seem to hold it as a hard moment passes. Of course, no one notices you are holding your breath because you're good at pretending to breath. And that's okay. You'd rather not anyone knew in the first place. You already know exactly what they'd say. So you just keep holding your breath, turning blue all the while. And then you realize there's no point to holding your breath. It doesn't fix anything. So you breath again, even if it's shallow. And you know something else will help you breath again. But for today, it's okay, you don't need help, you just need understanding.

Believe that opportunity is everywhere and all around you...
"People will try to tell you that all the great opportunities have been snapped up. In reality, the world changes every second, blowing new opportunities in all directions, including yours." -Ken Hakuta

Believe that the universe is friendly and life is on your side.

At 12am on January first I got an overwhelming feeling that this is going to be a great year.
And you know what?
Pretty sure I'm right.
My mom gave me  a book for Christmas called "Believe".
Sounds corny, I know, but it's not, so stop making fun.
I have decided to read a two pages every Sunday and make a goal to go along with my New Years resolutions based off of what is said on those pages.
Yesterday, the page I read said "Believe in fresh starts and new beginnings." and then there was a quote by Norman Cousins . . . "The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life. It provides human beings with a sense of destination and the energy to get started."
It is a habit of mine to tell people not to get their hopes up. The fact being that I tell others this obviously means that I have also developed a habit in my mind that I will not get my hopes up. This has been going on for a little over two years, and I have decided - WHY?
The fact is simple: I got hurt. But SO WHAT? People get hurt. That's what happens. We're all human.
So, I have officially decided, starting today, that I am going to get my hopes up. I am going to expect everything that I expect from people. Sure, the downfalls might be a lot higher of a drop, but at least I looked forward to something. At least I can go about my life having hope and faith in people,
So, I challenge you to hope for anything. Get your hopes up, believe in yourself.
Because without hope, what do you have, really?
