be with someone who will stop what they are doing to kiss you. Life gets crazy and busy and things happen and in the middle of it, i think its important to be with someone who can calm you and remember to make you feel loved

When Steve Irwin was filming a documentary near Baja, Mexico in 2003, he overheard on his radio that two scuba divers were reported missing in the area. He called in a search plane, his entire crew stopped filming to aid in the 2-day search and rescue operation, and he personally escorted the sole survivor to safety. Source

One thing I learned is 
that in the face of true love you don’t just give up - even if the object of your affection is begging you to.

Make yourself so happy so that when others look at you they become happy, too.

Hi everyone, Hi Taylor - I’m Elena, I’m from Spain and I’m 16 yrs old. Firstly, I’m sorry if this is misspelled, I speak Spanish so I’m gonna try and write this the best I can. So, now I can tell you my story: 

 I was born on 17th July of 1999 - 3 months earlier than expected. I weighed 400 grams at birth (yeah it’s crazy but totally real.) Everything was difficult in the early months of my life: I was about to cross the line of life or death. I couldn’t see because my eyes were not trained properly (I was able to see a few weeks later and now I have myopia, but it’s totally nothing important) and I had to be in an incubator for four months. But I preferred to stay here, in this catastrophic yet beautiful world. I was fearless

Unfortunately, last year I was diagnosed with deafness due to my early birth, but as I have had this for most of my life, it was not important for me. However, this is not the point.

I was so brave in my childhood, but now - not so much. My self-esteem didn’t exist. I didn’t value myself and I looked bad and sad. Now, I’m so much better than I was before -despite still being obsessive over my body because I don’t feel that I look beautiful - but I’m still proud of how far I’ve come. When I found you in 2008, that was probably the best discovery I’ve made in my life. Your songs reflect my feelings, and to me you are more than a singer: you are my role model because you are so sweet, you help everybody, you always want your fans happiness and you always make me feel alive and happy. You have no idea how much I love you and I need to hold you. You saved my life. I’m not clean now, but the storm is over. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING ME STRONG. YOU AND YOUR MUSIC HELPED ME WHEN NOBODY DID. 

In my childhood, not only the doctors but my endeavour and my effort (that’s what my parents say - that I really wanted to live but I couldn’t even think) saved me. And now, thanks to you, Taylor Alison Swift.. I’m here. So many times I have wanted to disappear, but thanks to you I did not. 

Fortunately, I haven’t got a big or important disease, but anyway: thank you, thank you, thank you. The only thing I want in my life is for you to know this. 

I love you so much, Tay. taylorswift
