It’s amazing how one perfect day can be ruined by one horrible moment.
It’s a moment for no regrets, for saying how you feel, for letting people know they’re the reason for your world still turning.
Fighting exhaustion, fighting the call of night, knowing that one more day stands between me and freedom.
His eyes were dancing and his smile was bright, while we laughed in the middle of a snowstorm. My heart was his and in that instant, I knew the future wasn’t too far away.
One heartbeat, deep within my chest, thrumming a beat against my sternum. I’m reminded I’m alive and I feel like somewhere, someone else’s heart is beating right in time with mine.
I found myself laughing tonight. I stopped for a moment, remembering all the laughter that won’t ever be heard again. It broke my heart, but I’ve realized that I need to keep laughing. I need to keep laughing because I am lucky enough to have that gift, and I don’t ever want to take it for granted.
Tonight, my country is crying. Tonight, I am crying. Tonight, I am bewildered, outraged and angry, and I want to know when things will change. I want to know when things like this will be prevented.
His is the only name I think of when word of love is spoken. My favorite melody is played within his smile.
Every day I keep myself from running is a day I call ‘success.’
One step at a time, one breath at a time, one heartbeat at a time. That’s how you get from beginning to end.
