love the life you live

“The Edge… there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.”

Wherever live takes you, leave the place shaking, disrupted, and trying to imagine what it was like before you came. Be a force for change; for pondering, and re-pondering. For love and the belief in the good in people. Go forth and be a force of awesome. Do epic, terrifying, unheard of shit. Whatever makes you happy. And drugs. And other “bad” things. And fall in love. If nothing else, fall in love.

““Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”
― Bob Marley”

“Go after her. Fuck, dont sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because thats what you should do if you love  someone. Don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never  come. Don’t let people happen to you, dont let me happen to you, or her;  shes not a fucking television show or tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at 4 in the  morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot  regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things  for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act  like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest. And making someone  fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on 4 days notice because you cant just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones. It’s not everyones idea of love, but it is the way I can recognize it  because that is what I do. Go. Scream it, and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is. That is raw and that is unguarded; and that is all that is worth anything, really.”
