Last year, my life went so uncontrollably spinning in one direction. It scared me because I lost control so quickly. Towards the end, I began to realize how uncontrollable life is.
And now, my life is spinning uncontrollably in another direction.
Do you know what I think the problem is? Trying to control it. I’m going to roll with the punches.
“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Not that you can put it all into a paragraph but it’s a nice little summary =)
“Forlornly, she brushed a strand of hair back from her forehead. A frown on her forehead, the graffiti of sorrow.”
What a beautifully sad sentence. The graffiti of sorrow.
Sheldon: “Although now that I think of it, he asked me not to tell you that.”
Penny: “I’ll pretend I didn’t hear it.”
Sheldon: “…I’d rather you pretend I didn’t say it.”
Anton: Vincent! How are you doing this? How have you done any of this?
Vincent: You want to know how I did it? This is how I did it. I never saved anything for the swim back.
Swallow your bullets and go on.
