.i'll always have you on my mind.

"I hope you make the best of it.
And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before.
I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of.
 If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

- Fitzgerald quoted by C. Guerra, excerpt from “wait…”

Margaret Rose

My very best friend that I have known my entire life just left for the Dominican Republic for the whole summer. She is going through the organization AMIGOS to help out. She is an amazing person that can make anyone laugh in any situation. She is so beautiful, smart (way more than she believes), and caring. She deeply cares for people which is an amazing quality to have. I love her to bits and miss her already and cannot wait for August to roll around. I hope she opens her eyes, ears, and most of all heart to all the people she is going to meet and the experiences she is going to have. I hope she will make the most of the trip and learn so much! But most of all, I hope that she knows that I love her and am always thinking of her... you are my best friend and always will be no matter how far away we are.

Go. Do. Be.

"Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it.”

Sail Away

I go through the motions,

Day by day,

I pray for a potion,

That will take all the pain away,

I say I’m ok

And smile all the same,

But today is the day,

That I feel myself stray,

Stray far away from all,

Hiding from my fear,

Away, away from you dear.

You are the one I need right now,

But in my pain,

I do not know how,

How to love, to care, to depend,

Depend on the you,

My dear, my dear.

You carry my heart with you always,

Even when I’m utterly alone,

Alone, alone in this motionless day.

Today was just one of those days. All I wanted to do all day was have any other life, be someone else, feel something else. Today was a day full of indescribable physical pain. Usually my physical pain doesn't affect my mindset so much, but today the pain swallowed me. I was overcome and almost defeated by my pain. When I feel this pain, instead of reaching out to those I trust and love, I hide my struggles deep inside my soul. The one thing that keeps my spirit up is knowing the love that exists. Love is so powerful. I know all my friends and family love me and I will have them if I choose to share my feelings. Love, love, lovely lovely love...

life in COLOR

Bring color into your life again! Summer is almost here so it is time to bring out all the bright, electric clothes you have. Wearing neon is for sure way to stand out and it will certainly cheer you up. Colors bring so much happiness to my life and give me an instant pick-me-up. The green trees, pink flowers, and blue hues of the lake are all at their brightest right now so reflect nature in your wardrobe. Make the world more beautiful one step at a time!
