I want to talk to someone entirely new. It doesn't matter who. Someone across the street or across the world. I want to exchange life stories and become great friends. Someone I can contemplate outer space with.
"Even though we've changed and we're all finding our own place in the world, we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we'll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we're not all still friends."
There are so many friends that I rarely see or talk to anymore, but the quote above reminds me that those people will always be important to me.
Today I'm going over my friend Laura's house to sleep over and babysit her nephew. I'm excited for two reasons. One, I finally get to babysit! And her nephew is to die for :] Secondly, because I haven't seen Laura since my birthday last August.
I don't know, I just like letting people know that I will always be there for them.
In a way, everyone is my hero. Some may say that that would rob the word of its meaning if it's assigned so easily. Obviously some people influence me more than others, but every one in this world has had some sort of effect on me. It's not about putting only certain people on a pedestal. It's about co-existing and appreciating what anyone has to offer. On the surface, what some people do may not be worth praising, but it can still alter you for the better. I don't know. I just wanted to get that out there. Even if I don't know you or you have wronged me, I still acknowledge your own unique place in this universe and I thank you for it because I'm at a point in my way of thinking where I will take anything as a positive influence.
Okay, to end this post, I encourage you to be. Exist as your own beautiful self and don't succumb to other people's idea of reality. There will be no limits to what you can do.
