    Somewhere, there is someone

    who dreams of your smile and finds in your presence that life is worthwhile, so when you are lonely remember that somebody somewhere is thinking of you.

    Our loved ones - whether by blood,

    by marriage, or by choice - are delicate treasures. If we hold them too close, they break - as a butterfly would. By honoring and enjoying the freedom of our loved ones, we gain our own freedom. Have the courage to trust that the beautiful butterflies of your life will return...

    Over the weekend I ran into an old regret.

    He was a co-worker until he decided to run his mouth off and get fired. He wasn't one to put up with authority though so I knew he wouldn't be there long. I regretted never saying goodbye to him.He is a cowboy that rides dirtbikes at competitions. He is one of the smoothest...

    An interesting person you have met.

    So a week back, I went to watch the movie Interstellar with one of my friend. As we went to purchase our tickets I felt a tap on my shoulder. I immediately froze and slowly looked behind; there was this guy with a goofy smile on his face and he awkwardly told me hi. I looked to...

    Maybe not in a cosmic way,

    but simply because we recognize or see something in them that we are longing for. It can be kindness, wisdom, humour, love or whatever else we are yearning to find and can see glimpses of in them. Sometimes they fulfill that need and move on, sometimes we discover we were wrong...

    “I no longer believed in the idea of soul

    mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that...

    Life is weird. You can go from being strangers,

    to being friends, to being more than friends, to being practically strangers again.

    The Story of 'US' from the Individual Statuses We Posted

    First, the disavowal… NONE of this is true. It’s total fiction and in the extremely unlikely chance that anything in this story even remotely resembles truth, I wouldn’t know it. So, please take this in the spirit it’s intended—total fiction—just a fun way of thinking...
