This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.
—  Ralph Waldo Emerson
One day, eight years from now, I’ll wake up to an apartment I share with my best friend and we’ll eat cheap take out and watch old movies and tell each other stories from our childhood.
One day, eight years from now, I’ll walk into work with a smile as I do my job because it is exactly where I want to be.
One day, eight years from now, I’ll smile and laugh and learn what it really means to be happy.
One day, eight years from now, whatever I have will be enough because simply is the best way to live.
