I’m avoiding reality and I need to stop.
- Him: You're an outlier. Too beautiful to live. Too rare to die.
- Me: ...I'm not sure that's a good thing. Is it?
- Him: Yes. I love you more than I love anything else. Even myself.
- Me: That can't possibly be true.
- Him: It must be.

There are times you find yourself waiting for the moment when you can start over. And there are times when life tells you, by giving you no other choice, Time to wake up. That moment is here.
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because 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.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. 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.” —Neil Gaiman (via elige)
When it comes to relationships and commitment there are some who will watch from the shore, some who will wade into it, and a few who will dive in head first into raging waters.
As I was enjoying the view, he was jumping. The thought of the water rushing into my lungs is almost paralyzing. But I have to wonder if this is one of those times when I should just let go, dive in and hope that the current doesn’t take me under.
Alright 2012. So far, I’m liking your style and I can tell you’re not like the others. Please don’t disappoint me. We can be so good for each other.
Happy New Year, my lovelies!
