Day 14 ~ Beautiful Creatures

Book quote

“The guys were going down one road, and I was going down another.”

At times in our lives, there comes a point when we realize that the path we are meant to travel, isn’t always the same as the people in our lives. As we grow, we change, and where are life is heading isn’t always going to lead us to the same place as the people we may have once thought it would. Depending on the time in my life, I have had various close friends. People who for a time were always there. But as we grew, as we began and ended school. As we moved away, or stayed in place. As we held jobs and careers. As some people got married and had children, what brought us together changed.

Each of those friends were important to me at that time, and still hold a place in my heart because they were apart of my life for a certain period of my life. Over the years I have lost touch with many people, or they have become facebook friends that occasionally like my status. But that doesn’t change the fact that we were once great friends. All it means is that eventually, we each reach a road and have to take our own path.

Sometimes we are able to keep connected with others and even though our paths are not the exact same,  they are intertwined. I have had the same best friends for many years even though we each live in a different state and are at different areas of our lives.  That is how I know they are my best friends. We may not walk the same road, but we walk together.

“You be you and I’ll be me, today and today and today, and let’s trust the future to tomorrow. Let the stars keep track of us. let us ride our own orbits and trust that they will meet. May our reunion be not a finding but a sweet collision of destinies! Love and Love and Love Again, Stargirl.”

Day 11 ~ It Had to Be You

“Of course you’re not pretty like Phoebe. You’re pretty in your own way. That is the best thing about women. Each one has her own way about her.”

As a person who struggles with self confidence, this quote means a lot to me. It is difficult not to compare yourself with others, especially if you see them in a way you wish you saw yourself. And while this is difficult to do, it is important to remember that we are all unique. It would be pretty boring if we all looked and acted the same. But we are who we are, and it is who we are that makes us beautiful.
