For all the lost, broken, lonely, depressed, cynical, bitter, angry, cold, terrified, despairing people. For all of us. The last part of “What makes it worth It”—in ten quotes to help us remember why we must carry on.
Losing you is going to hurt like hell, but you of all people know it’s possible to live with pain.
-The Fault in Our Stars
It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo, the ones that really matter. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes, you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when there’s so much bad that happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow; even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer….
The Lord of the Rings
There are far, far greater things ahead than any we leave behind.
Life damages us, everyone. We can’t escape that damage. But now I am learning this: We can be mended. We mend eachother.
The path to heaven runs through miles of clouded hell.
What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses.
Then from on high, somewhere in the distance there’s a voice that calls, “Remember who you are!” If you lose yourself, your courage soon will follow. So be strong tonight. Remember who you are.
Sound the Bugle
Sometimes you make choices in life and sometimes choices make you….life is this big fat gigantic stinking mess, but that’s the beauty of it too.
If I Stay
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,”
even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you.
When faced with tragedy, we come alive or come undone
So don’t hold back, let it shape you like an ocean
Even the deepest scars in time will fade..
Nothing matters when the pain is all but gone
When you are finally awake
Despite the overwhelming odds, tomorrow came.
And when they see you crack a smile
And you decide to stay a while
You’ll be ready then, to laugh again!
Today is September 27.
A day of hope.
