Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.
I don’t want to have the world’s attention. Yours is enough.
Writing is effortless for me and I don’t know why but I won’t question my blessings. It’s not that I have trouble talking because it doesn’t even take meeting me in person to know that I’ll ramble for days if no one stops me, but I’m simply wasting my breath because I speak without conviction and it’s one of my biggest flaws. If I read aloud what I’ve written, it’s purposeful.. It’s thought provoking and unsettling yet comforting all within the same stroke of the hand as just one word can hold two meanings that are as conflicting and harmonious as I have come to be. The difference between spoken word and written is simply that, respectively, one exposes your brain while the other expresses your heart.
