“you always need to be thinking about back up plans—and sometimes—back-up plans to your back-up plans. Don’t rely on one way to do something, think about multiple paths.”—10 Things I Learned From Failure
people miss chance opportunities because they are too focused on looking for something else. They go to parties intent on finding their perfect partner and so miss opportunities to make good friends. They look through newspapers determined to find certain types of job advertisements and as a result miss other types of jobs.
Nothing comes to you easily in life. You want something? Go for it. Being angry or sad doesn't fix anything. Do something about it. Treat yourself right. Everybody has conflicts and problems, just some hide it well, some deal with it, and some just crumble.
“Don’t lose who you are, in the blur of the stars.
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It’s okay not to be okay.
Sometimes it’s hard, to follow your heart.
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising, just be true to who you are.”—Jessie J, Who You Are. (via jeremyfall)
