The perks of being a wallflower
16 March 2015
Life can be confusing sometimes, in all different ways. We can go through bad times, and things that we’ll never really understand. Why do these things happen? How do we fit in to the whole picture?
It’s important to have faith, that the universe is unfolding as it should. You’re here now. We’re here now. Let’s enjoy that.
We may not have been able to choose where we came from, but we can choose where we are going.
It’s important to be able to live in the moment, in the moments, as much as we can.
I love the following quote, from one of my favourite movies, “The perks of being a wallflower”:
“I don’t know if I will have the time to write any more letters, because I might be too busy trying to participate. So, if this does end up being the last letter, I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school, and you helped me. Even if you didn’t know what I was talking about, or know someone who’s gone through it, you made me not feel alone. Because I know there are people who say all these things don’t happen. And there are people who forget what it’s like to be sixteen when they turn seventeen. I know these will all be stories some day, and our pictures will become old photographs. We all become somebody’s mom or dad. But right now, these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am here, and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive. And you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song, and that drive with the people who you love most in this world. And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite.”
