Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon.
Love Always. :)
When the tides of life turn against you and the current upsets your boat, don't waste time and tears on what might have been, just lie on your back and float.


Hours blur into days

into weeks

into months.
Suddenly a year has passed and all I have is
a smattering of insignificant moments in my hands because I
was in too much of a hurry to gather the rest.
They happened—
—but they’ve passed.
And each day they grow closer to being forgotten.
What happens next always seems to be more important
than what happens now.
There is never a present moment that is quite satisfactory
that I can quite grasp.
The moments dissolve like smoke
easy to see
but impossible to hold.
