We’re rounding the corner of this year, and 2018 is vastly approaching with its promises and expectations.
In honor of the end of this year, I’m revealing a small portion of my collection of quotes, lyrics, and notes, which I’ve kept for the last year. Some are words written by my favorite authors, others are lyrics that I find myself humming, and some are even words that were spoken or written to me that I keep to reflect on. A good sum of the words that I keep are those that I feel inspired by. Whether it’s to become the kind of person who fits the description of some or it’s that I am constantly reminding myself to practice the advice of some, I feel obliged to hold onto these. I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites.
“You’re a lover of the wild and a joker of the heart.” The Kooks, Junk of the Heart
“She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.” – Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park
“Before you say no, don’t say no.” – New Girl, episode 25 season 2
“I still remember me before you.” – Seinabo Sey, Still
“Choices were easy to make until you realized how long life could be.” – Emma Straub, Modern Lovers
“I have what I have and I am happy. I’ve lost what I’ve lost and I am still happy.” – Rupi Kaur, Milk & Honey
And there you have it!
2017 held a lot of very special times for me. Whether times of grief or glee, I learned to stop relying on others or even myself, but instead I relied on love. The love I have for people and the love being shown to me. With that being said, my salutations go out to 2018 as I look forward to loving more.
Thanks for reading,
