words that I keep around for good measure. also Love.

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.

One thought on “words that I keep around for good measure. also Love.

  1. “If my heart is overwhelmed and I cannot hear Your voice
    I hold onto what is true, though I cannot see
    If the storms of life they come and the road ahead gets steep
    I will lift these hands in faith, I will believe…” Love Came Down. Brian Johnson
