Soooo….There were no quotes yesterday, I skipped a day. Like sometimes a dieter cheats on a diet or a gym rat skips a day of sweating. Real life happened. Family day, Jurassic World, comics, tacos, puppies…Ya know the real world stuff. The stuff that makes everyone go awww or AHHHHH DINOSAURS! (I was a lot of the latter) Anyway. Todaybegan a new chapter in my book. A post about that later, on a new page as I will be documenting the who journey. First, on my last day of quotes I will tag my three lovlies… revealingtheabsolute storyshucker and thatshamelesshussy . I really want to see what they have to say.
So onto my quotes. I have two ad I have each time. These two go hand in hand with what I ent through today, with what I will be experiencing in the next few months, with where I hope you will journey with me.
This first one goes out to my very loving boyfriend Charming. And it’s true, he does. He faces my triggers with me head on. He doesn’t back down when I push him away. He grabs my hands when I want to scratch and hands me something to occupy my fingers with. He sees my switch flip and holds me till it flips back. He knows when to turn the music up because I just need to lose myself. He pushes me when I need pushing and backs off when I have had to much. We have laughed and cried. When I started my journey at the doctors today he waiting impatiently by the phone to make sure I was ok. I never thought I wuld make it through all I went through without him and I never thought I could make it to that appointment today without of support. He makes me brave enough to believe in me.
Because it is OK just to be you. I love you for you (I have to learn how to turn that on myself) but YOU should love you for you. It is OK to get up, go to Starbucks and let everyone see you just as you are. That is when you will know how loved you are, who is there with you all the way. It isn’t about what you wear or how you look it is abut how you carry yourself and what your spirit looks like
So much love
So it is day 2 in the quote challenge and before I enlighten you with my wisdom of the day let me tag my gorgeous blogger that must embark on their quests. Lessons , Alladesria DeVile and Susan Halloran. The reason I am choosing these three bloggers is because I feel that each one of them have an incredible message to give to you.
I chose two quotes today, they really go hand in hand with a few things that have running through my mind lately. A lot about the way things used to be and the way they are today.
And you have to realize that that is for the best. The way things used to be, the way that you used to be is what made you who you are today. To hold the past close to your heart is one thing, but to hold it as a shield in front of you will only hurt you and those who are trying to make your future brighter.
There are people that come and go in your life and the sad part is you never know who they are going to be when you first meet them. There are the friends that will be there when you need someone to chest off a test, or who will take you to prom when you date ditches you. Friends who will cover for you as you sneak out when shoplifting for the first time and who will lie to your parents when you sneak out with your rebel bad guy boyfriend. Then their are the friends that are there for you no matter what, laughter and tears, heartbreak and proposals, whether you saw them 5 minutes ago or haven’t spoke in 8 or 9 years.
No matter what kind of friend they were, when things change, when you or they change and grow up it is never the same. Peter and Wendy are no more. Never Neverland fades away into a childhood memory and you have to close that storybook and open a new one.
So my lovelies…..I was tagged in this lovely challenge by myambivalentexistence . So I shall do this and I believe I have to tag 3 someones each day. I shall tag random darlings on my list! here we go Da UGLY Duckling Every Word You Say and Weathering the Storm you have been challenged.
And in the spirit of the Independence Day here is my quote –
Yes, yes…How odd an American posting a quote from a movie about a Scottish hero on America’s beloved Fourth of July. Well ya see, here is the thing…Most of me is Scottish, My great grand father was a famous soccer player there, I have a clan a tartan and all that jazz. And I am proud of my heritage, hell I am the only green eyed one in the family. But there is more to this quote than that, it explains everything that life should embody. Taking chances, doing things that you believe i. saying fuck the consequences, I need to do what I believe in. Now I am not talking about crazy things people, I am talking about talking to that one person that make your pulse race, wearing red lipstick just cuz it makes you feel good, buying that bathing suit and not caring if everyone is looking at you or not. Freedom f choice, of expression, being you. Independence of oppression, from being ruled over, from being held doing things we can’t stand behind (in good mind).
Happy Fourth of everyone
