I Want Change.

You know something that's been on my mind day and night for a while now? Change. Even the word brings shivers up my spine. We're all the same, aren't we. We get caught up in the same old routine of things and never think to change it up. Never think that something drastic might just make us better people. Might just improve us somehow. But I truly think that going on new adventures and trying new things can not only make us better, but it can introduce us to things we never thought we would live through or see. It makes us more confident. It makes us enjoy life to the fullest.

For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. -Steve Jobs 

Guys, I don't know about you, but I don't want to sit here and live my life the way I don't want to. I want to explore the world. I want to go on crazy adventures that might scare me at first. Because although I can't even tell you how much I hate the word YOLO, in this case it has a truly amazing meaning. Life is short. Don't get bored with the same routine. Your time is ticking and it goes by so fast. (I know, I'm a debbie downer eh?) From the beautiful lyrics from Aerosmith:

"Time, don't let it slip away. Raise your drinking glass, here's to yesterday."

So my friends, this goes out to you. May you try new things. May you never get bored with the routines of life. I don't want it to seem like I am living my life perfectly. In fact, the reason I am writing this right now is because I am wanting so badly for something major to change in my world currently. Something. Anything. I'm getting tired of getting used to doing the same old things. I do love life, but I'm ready for a change friends.

Please tell me . . . Am I the only one?

What Do You Got?♥

You know what makes me sad? It makes me sad that I have to talk about love so much. It makes me sad that a lot of people don't get it. Actually, it makes me think of the lyrics from "What Do You Got" by Bon Jovi.

"If you ain't got love, it's all just keeping score
If you ain't got love, what the heck we doing it for?
I don't wanna have to talk about it..
How many songs you gotta sing about it?"


Love is something that is so indescribable - Isn't it? Questions run around your head like what IS love? How do you know when your in love? How can I love when I've been hurt so much? It's one of those things that is so confusing. So extraordinary. So strange. But yet...We still run back to it, don't we? No matter how many times we get hurt by loving...It's force pulls us in once more. I know it has for me. I think love is just one of those things that's mysterious but yet so fantastic. I don't know what I would be without it. I can't fathom it, actually. I know a lot of you probably feel that way as well. So I guess...if I've learned one thing in my life, it's to try to love as much as you breathe. Never forget that. Because whether you know it or not my darlings, you will get hurt. Abused. Scarred. And to be loving, that will inspire and change people - No matter who they are. No matter how horrible they may seem. I swear to you - You have the power to change lives. And that alone makes me so freaking excited. It makes me think that maybe someday when I'm passed on, people will remember me. Maybe not for being a famous actress, but they will remember me as someone who loved even the lowest of lows. Someone who was there for others. That's my one wish in life.

So, cheers my friends. Cheers to life...cheers to struggles...but most of all, cheers to love.

Stay Beautiful♥
