“Fireproof doesn’t mean the fire will never come. It means when the fire comes that you will be able to withstand it.”
No one every knows what is going to happen. If something good will come our way, or if something tragic will. What matters is what we do when it comes.
“Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.”
Some memories we wish we could run from, others we never want to forget, either way they are apart of us, they help make us who we are, who we’re going to be.
“You can shed tears that he is gone, or you can smile because he has lived, You can close your eyes and pray the he’ll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all he’s left. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him, or you can be full of the love you share. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him only that he is gone, or you can cherish his memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what he’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”

Last summer our schools suffered a terrible loss. One of our fellow students had passed away. In remembrance of him at one of the first football games, his teammates brought out his jersey to the bench with them and the student section had tons of balloons that they released after the National Anthem in his memory. He may be gone but the impacts that he has made will last forever.
“You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you might find what you need.”
~The Rolling Stones~
I’ve heard this quote so many times and yet I can’t get enough of it because it is so true. There are many times in life that we search for what we want and think what we need isn’t what we would want. And when we want something we have to have it right now, no later. But if we would take a step back and look at the big picture we would realize that sometimes what we need is more than what we could ever want, but we also have t be willing to wait for it.
I know I posted a picture like this, but I was playing around with the different filters in my programs and I found this one. I thought it just turned out so cool and different. I love it so much and I just wanted to share it with you guys! Hope you like it 🙂
“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.”
Trust is so important in life. Trust in others and trust in yourself. If you don’t have trust in yourself you will never think you are capable to do anything, and you could miss out on the experiences that life has in store for you. I’ll admit, trust can be scary. But without it you’ll never allow yourself to get close to anything or anyone.
