I would rather be ashes than dust
I would rather that my spark should burn out
in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom
of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.
To do every single thing you have ever wanted to do. To do what makes you happy. To smile, to smile at strangers, to smile at yourself in the mirror, to love every moment, to be happiness, to be the light that others need. To emulate what you have always wanted and needed.
This is to truly live. So go;
Immerse yourself in life. Quit waiting until tomorrow. stop. start. play. breath.
Forget. Remember. Reminisce.
Smile. At. Life.

I have been going through what seems like hell. I have been feeling lonely, ugly,worthless, unwanted, uncared for, you name it. I started purposely hurting myself, drinking, and just wanted to “slowly” kill myself. I reached out to a friend from church and I told her what I was going through. She put together a group of people and they prayed for me. I didn’t instantly feel better. I continued to mope.Then I decided to go to stumbleupon.com and the first site it took me to…..was this one. I started bawling my eyes out. At the same time another friend from church texted me saying “you are beautiful” and she suggested a song called “beautiful” by MercyMe. I bawled my eyes out for a good 15 minutes. I feel better, but I can’t say I am fully recovered, but I am getting somewhere!
It always makes me feel better to know that where you are right now, is where you are meant to be. Do not stress about your surroundings and the pressures around you. Live in the moment and know that whatever happens is exactly what is supposed to.
Please allow yourself happiness. Darling, it is that simple and that complex.
