"Quando eu olho o que a vida vem se tornando eu vejo que tudo se resume a te amar. O dia sorriu e eu acordei, foi o melhor que já nasceu! E é você e só você que o fará durar. Não até o fim, até o ciclo terminar, não até morrer e o pó à terra misturar. Que seja para sempre e todo sempre um eterno altar [...] eu reviveria outras trezentas primaveras". #fiveyears ❤
This didn't look real to me. When I see the mountains meet the horizon in the daytime it still doesn't look real to me.
Maybe it's because these are the things I'm used to seeing in pictures. Maybe it's because this place still feels like somewhere I'm visiting rather than my actual home now. Besides the fact that I've never felt at home in Connecticut or Massachusetts or really anywhere for that matter.
My understanding of the concept of "home" has been recently evolving. I'm learning that home is everywhere we go because it's who we are.
Home lives inside your heart and inside all the things you place your love upon. Home is in the smile you give the clerk at the corner store who always greets you with a "hey pretty lady" on even your worst days. But it is also in the friendly greeting you give the clerk at the new corner store in a completely different time zone. Home is in the time you invest in people being open and genuine and true.
In a place like LA where I've seen a lot of superficiality cliquishness.. I dare to still believe in these things. I search inside myself daily for that reservoir of love and hope that I might be able to share with those around me regardless of what they can do for me and what they look like and how much money they flaunt and so forth.
My journey has only just begun. I'm facing new challenges and having to push myself hard to being motivated to do even the most menial things daily. But I still do it over and over!
Because I am HERE and here to stay. For a little while at least.
My homie. Nobody has ever worked on my nerves the way you do. Nobody has ever made me laugh quite the way you do, and you don't even do it on purpose. Nobody has forced me into fun situations the way you do. You're so very special and I love you very much. Happy birthday.
This photo proves I've known you for a minute. #throwback#happybirthday#twentyfour#twentyfourseven#badpun
For my last day of being 24, I wanted two things. To go on a date with my wife and to see the royals get the .500. I didn't think one of those things were gonna happen. But they both did. #walkoff#wife#kansascity#royals#twentyfour
