Quote #7 – Life

I appreciate my friends and the conversations we have.  I also understand that we all have different experiences and come from different places.  These unique qualities make us all special.  I hope to cherish each and every person and all that makes them whole.

The following quote is my own:

“Sometimes life is more complicated than you wish it was – but through good friends, you can find life’s true meaning.”

Life & Risk Taking / Quote #6

As I have been reminded recently, Graduation is quickly approaching (Literally, in two weeks from the typing of this post I will be at the Graduation ceremony!).  Next year will be quite different and as I have continuously reminding myself, that’s okay.

I am great at making decisions but a more indecisive when it comes to myself.  I do not always like to put myself out there, but have made a point of doing better at that.  With only two weeks left until life changes, I am trying to take advantage of each opportunity as it presents itself.  Sometimes though, the alternatives may not always be the ones I would like to choose between.  I just hope for the best.  I know that what is meant to happen is what will be.

I’m a big fan of Mark Twain.  I mean, the guy is extremely intelligent, writes great books, and is from Missouri!  I believe that this quote is appropriate for my current mood and in relation to recent occurences:

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
– Mark Twain

I’m only 22.  In 20 years, my life will be almost twice as long and I will be in a significantly different place.  As I have been asking myself and others lately, how many tomorrows will there be?  We need to take advantage of today.

Quote #3 – How to Save a Life

The Fray says this song is open to interpretation so I am going to take them up on the offer.  How to Save a Life is one of my favorite songs and I find that its words can be applicable to many situations.  In light of recent occurrences with some people I care deeply about, I think it may be appropriate.

The Fray – How to Save a Life

Step one you say we need to talk
He walks you say sit down it’s just a talk
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
And you begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best
Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you’ve told him all along
And pray to God, he hears you
And pray to God, he hears you

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you’ve followed
He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he’ll say he’s just not the same
And you begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

How to save a life

How to save a life

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
How to save a life

How to save a life
