☞ “whoever’s reading this: i hope that you find love. not just a love for a person, but for the way the sky and ocean meet, the way the leaves change colors in the fall, the way that each and every single snowflake is unique, the way your family gathers around the fire place, the sound of pure raw laughter, and you can not forget to find love for yourself. i hope you find happiness. not a temporary type of happiness but long lasting real happiness. the kind that makes you smile a smile so bright you outshine the stars in the sky. happiness that lights up your beautiful soul. sometimes you’ll just have to forgive people that hurt you to achieve this, not because they are sorry, but because you deserve to live a life with love and happiness. “ // this quote brought me to tears when i first came across it . it’s so crazy but beautiful to me that quotes, words from books, or even words from people can truly impact the way you view and live your life. forever grateful for all the writers out there that are simply speaking their mind, but have no idea how their words are changing someone’s life.
