Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

 "It's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life..." 


If we are friends, you have and will hear that quote a lot from me.  It is one of my very favourite.  Sometimes we need to look at the bigger picture to realise that life is beautiful.  If we spend too much time thinking of the small bad things its easy to forget that life (on a whole scale) is amazing.  When you stop and reflect really closely on all the small good things your perspective changes.  Sometimes these little things can have such euphoric effects and if you feel them - well done!  If you don't - try harder and look deeper.

Now, on to the topic of relationships.  I'm not talking boy+girl=love relationships but friendships too.  The saying goes "nobody is worth your tears and the one that is will never make you cry".  Its funny how companionship and friendship can be so emotionally full filling.  The human heart longs to feel the warmth of companionship and friendship; both which have euphoric effects.  We feel that once we find a companion that is it, we must hold on.  It does work like that but companions come and go.  People may slot into your life but soon change, or you change.  Its hard to let go of the people that we once loved and cared about, especially if the bond was broken for such absurd reasons or for something not worth thinking about.  Sometimes you both forget why you're wasting your time not being friends and other times its more serious.  You are never alone.  For temporary periods it may feel as much but there is always someone there.  Both children and adults change, adapt and grow; depending on the situations they are put in and the people that they are around.  You may make decisions to be friends or not be friends with certain people for your benefit and for a period a huge loss WILL be felt but remember that this is a segment in an entire lifetime.  There will be more people along soon that you will build a connection with and share your life with.  Who knows- maybe you and them will sort things out because you will both reach the same level of maturity, you will be able to talk about why things screwed up etc.  If you love someone and you lose them if its worth it, its likely to come back to you some way or another.
