A good life is when you assume nothing,
do more, need less, smile often, dream big,
laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are.
Sometimes, I get this urge to talk to you,
and then I remember that you’re a different person now.
It’s just sad because I miss you a lot.
The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves,
and not to twist them to fit our own image.
Otherwise, we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
She did not need much, and wanted very little.
A kind word. Sincerity. Fresh air. Clean water.
A garden. Kisses. Books to read. Sheltering arms.
A cozy bed. And to love and be loved in return.
I hope that in this new year to come,
you make mistakes.
If you are making mistakes,
then you are making new things,
trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself,
changing yourself, changing your world.
You’re doing things you've never done before,
and more importantly,
you’re doing something.
Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry
that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect,
whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, DO IT.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
I’m really happy I met you.
I hope you know that.
Your journey has molded you for your greater good.
And it was exactly what it needed to be.
Don’t think that you've lost time.
It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now.
And now is right on time.
Jealousy comes from counting others’ blessings
instead of our own.
