It’s not so bad when you’re in a new place. It only gets bad when you’ve realized that you’ve left a place behind. It’s almost like hearing the shock and shatter of a plate hitting the ground—your head jerks up, your eyes widen, and you realize there’s a few pieces missing in your heart. A few broken, jagged pieces you’ll never be able to find and glue back together again.
When we’re young all we want is to be older,
But when we finally understand the meaning of what it means to be grown up, it’s too late to change our minds and revert back to the easier days of childhood.
Life is too short to spend inside when the sun is shining and there’s a wonderful book to read. :)
I always wonder what life would have brought
If I had given my choices another thought
And changed my mind to something more
Than leaving behind a clos-ed door.
“Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and sad and dreary…”
—Louisa May Alcott
We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
