"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."
Some people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them, I said.
Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That’s what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway."
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars (via climatizing)
I used to live my life constantly waiting for the next segment of my life to start. For things to get better so that life would get better. I spent a couple years with this mindset. I looked back and realized that I had wasted those years never truly enjoying life. It was a mentality I had, so even when good things happened my mind was never there to revel in it. It was a plague on my perception, sent to waste my life. If you live your life constantly waiting for the next day, you’ll look back and realize you never truly lived.
"Don’t you ever get the feeling that all your life is going by and you’re not taking advantage of it? Do you realize you’ve lived nearly half the time you have to live already?"
Thank you God for giving me such a rich life. I have the best friends any guy could ask for. A beautiful God fearing family who will love me till the end. Thank you for allowing me to know and see and feel the depth of love that people search for a lifetime but never find. You are so good. Happy Thanksgiving.
"That’s how you know you love someone, I guess, when you can’t experience anything without wishing the other person were there to see it, too."

After my father’s funeral I stayed for awhile until all the people left. I sat on a bench at a nearby park. Friends and family came sat next to me and said a few words. “Things will get better…He’s in a better place now…I’m praying for you..” But there were no amount of words that could change how I felt. There was one man I didn’t know. He came and sat next to me for awhile without saying a word. I hated to see him go.
"Oh Lord You’ve searched me. You know my way. Even when I fail You,
I know You love me."
