live your life and smile

Be the messenger of positivity, the bringer of kindness, and the bearer of humility. In other words, be the best person that you can possibly be, each and every day.

Nope, no more being embarrassed…feeling worthy & loving who I am. I am me & that’s all I can be, love my little pieces, or not…I have imperfections, but I have learned to accept every single one of them.

Remember…the one who truly loves you will ALWAYS love you for you❤️

Do what makes you happy. Take care of yourself. Be carefree. We’re not going to live forever, and when you really think about it, it’s really not that long in the grand scheme of things. So live gracefully. Stop chasing towards material things and being someone that you’re not. Life is far too short to be anyone but yourself and to be doing anything that you’re not completely in love with.

As the years go by, you’ll feel like you are changing, when you’re actually just becoming closer and closer to your true self.

We’re teenagers. We’re still learning. Shit Happens. We cheat, we lie, we criticize, we fight over stupid things. We fall in love and end up getting hurt. We bitch, bitch, bitch, and bitch. We bitch about bitches being bitches. We party till dawn, we drink till we pass out. We hate people for no reason, we call each other names. We stay up late having deep conversations, or stay up late just to think. We go out and have a kick ass time with our friends and THOSE WILL BE THE MEMORIES. One day that’s going to all pass. You can waste your time on focusing on all the bad things, but one day you’re gonna wish you were still a teenager. So make the most of what you have now, forget all the bullshit and drama and LIVE YOUR FUCKING LIFE WITH A SEXY SMILE ON YOUR FACE!!!!!
Falling In Love In A Coffee Shop

Tony x Reader

Part One:  I’ve seen the paths that your eyes wander down. I want to come too.

The title of this series come from this song and it will be central to this series going forward, so as usual please feel free to give it a listen, and this whole idea was born from a request by the ever lovely @wellthatsrandomkek

Set in the aftermath of Civil War when Tony is attempting to heal and forgive, when he meets you at a chance meeting in a small town coffeeshop will both of your lives be affected forever? Also if you have seen the movie We Bought A Zoo (2011), I imagine reader’s fashion sense and general personality to be quite like Scarlet Johansson’s character Kelly. So her setting is going to be a ranger in a wildlife park.


Request: Tony has a lot on his mind and one day leaves the tower. He finds this small, cozy coffee shop and he can’t decide what to order. You (a regular) are behind him and orders for the both of you. You talk, swap numbers and proceed to text a lot. His whole mood lights up when he gets a text from you and he slowly falls in love with you. He loves the calm you give him and your gentle ways when he spends time with you.

Warnings: Sad Tony. Sad Reader.

Words: c, 1,600


The place was empty with half the team missing. Vision was miserable and even if Rhodey had told him a hundred times not to be so hard on him Tony couldn’t quite bring himself to forgive him.

But he couldn’t help but pause to wonder if Vision was who he was really angry at.

Or was it Steve?

Or himself?

Or all of the above?

He sighed and ran his hands over his face, he felt exhausted and a lot older than he actually was.

He had to get out of this place, and everything it reminded him of and so rising from his office chair, he grabbed his coat and drove until he reached some small town he didn’t quite catch the name of, and then pulling into a parking space on the side of the road he spotted  a small coffee shop and wearily made his way inside.

He stood in line but he felt numb, and his mind was certainly elsewhere by the time he heard the barista ask him his order.

He looked panicked up at the order boards, and for some reason he couldn’t get his brain to work. He begged his brain for help but he realised with a startle that he must have said it out loud when a gentle hand reached for his arm.

“Are you alright?” you asked him gently.

“I can’t!” he was shaking his head gently “I have no idea what to order.”

“Any allergies to nuts?” you asked and he shook his head slowly.

“Two hazelnut lattes,” you told the barista and watched the man before you visibly relax, you had planned on simply getting your coffee to go and driving back out to your ranch, but in that instant your plans had changed and you knew you were going to sit with this terrified stranger until he no longer looked quite so terrified.


One sip of his coffee and his brown eyes locked with yours in concurrence.

“It’s good right?” you smiled gently, stirring the contents of your own cup and he hmmed in agreement.

“Thanks, by the way,” he said softly “back there I just sort of went blank and freaked out.”

“It happens,” you answered kindly and offered him a warm smile, that he returned wearily, but genuinely.

“Did you get lost on the highway?” you gently pressed and he looked at you questionly and you couldn’t help but smile, he was in expensive jeans and you were pretty sure his sweater was designer, you and everyone around you for that matter were in jeans, and yours were slightly faded you’d had them so long.

“I mean you’re dressed a little too well to be from anywhere around here.”

Catching your drift he chuckled slightly, “I guess you could say that I did get a little lost,” in more ways than one he thought bitterly and ran a hand over his face for good measure.

“Well then I guess of all places to get lost, I’m glad you washed up here. You’ve saved me from a horrendously boring afternoon.”

“Is that right?” he perked up ever so slightly “and why is that?”

You leaned in closer for emphasis, “you have saved me from an afternoon of mowing grass, and potting plants.”

Tony smiled, “You know that doesn’t sound so awful, it sounds quite therapeutic actually.”

“Ok now I really know you must be a city boy!” you chuckled and he looked at you with an amused expression on his face.

“You don’t know who I am?” he asked with a quirk of his head and you looked at him utterly perplexed, before shaking your head.

“Should I know?”

“No, no you shouldn’t,” he exclaimed and looked almost delighted that you didn’t, “My name is Tony,” he offered with a genuine smile and you couldn’t help but smile back, “y/n.”

“So what brought you out here to the middle of nowhere?” you tried gently and he looked at you for a moment as if he was sizing you up.

“I had to get away for a bit. Things were.. well everything’s sort of a mess really,” he looked so tired and so dejected, that your heart caught a little in your chest.

“Can these things be fixed?” you coaxed gently “If you try, can they be fixed?”

“I think so,” he answered with a pained expression.

“Then try,” you almost whispered “The only way to fail is by not trying and if whatever it is is making you this unhappy then you owe it to yourself to try.”

He didn’t answer for a moment and you thought maybe for a moment you had overstepped your mark.

“It’s just,” he began, but paused until he looked at your expectant expression and something about you, your aura, your whole being made him feel like it was safe to talk to you and he found himself increasingly wishing he could just offload everything he had been carrying for weeks upon you.

“What if you get hurt again?” you finished for him softly and he damn near almost choked up as he nodded to you.

“Am I that obvious?” he tried to joke but it fell flat.

You looked at him honestly for a moment “I would recognise that look in your eyes anywhere.”

“I’m just. so. tired,” he told you honestly “and I can’t face staying in that place any longer. It’s just too empty, so I hit the road and I just drove until I couldn’t drive anymore and here I am.”

“Well I’m glad of all the coffeeshops, in all the towns you passed that this was the one that you chose.”

“Me too,” he told you honestly.

A few moments of comfortable silence passed between you and when you looked up from your cup he was looking right at you, really looking at you for the first time since he had sat down and it made your cheeks heat up.

He opened his mouth to speak when his ringtone interrupted the moment and when he saw Rhodey’s name on the screen he panickly answered.

“Yes, I’ll be there as soon as I can,” he answer hurriedly and then rising from the table so quickly he almost knocked it over, you struggled to keep up with the sudden change of pace and as soon as he hung up he rounded on you in a rush and pulled you to him in a quick hug.

“I’m sorry I have to go, you’ve been so lovely and wonderful, but I have to go.”

You barely got a chance to answer him when he was rushing out the door and disappearing out of sight, and you collapsed back into your seat dazed, whispering “goodbye Tony,” under your breath and mourning the loss of a man you didn’t even know.


As you turned off the road into your driveway that evening, you were met by the head groundskeeper of the nature park you worked and lived at and you smiled because just like that your life was back to normal, almost as if you had never met a handsome stranger in the middle of your local coffeeshop only a few hours before.

“I thought you’d never get back,” he joked and you climbed out of your truck, pulling the various animal feeds you had purchased in town on your way home.

“Eliza had to mow the lawns so you’re officially in her bad books,” he joked and when you half smiled at him he patted you reassuringly, “I know it’s been tough, I know you’re really going through it right now, but hang in there. This place, the animals, all of us, we really need you.”

You smiled then genuinely, and he smiled back as he helped you carry some of the larger sacks up to the barn, and as the sun set your mind wandered back to Tony, you hoped he could mend whatever, whoever, was eating him up.

As for you, you would keep trying to do the same thing.



Tony lay awake listening to the silence. Can you even listen to silence he wondered, perhaps you could he decided after all. You definitely could if the sound of silence was what was keeping you awake. Right?

His mind wandered back to you for the thousandth time since he got back home..could he even call it home anymore?

What you had said to him about trying to fix things with Steve had struck a chord he didn’t even know he needed to hear, how had you known he was afraid of being hurt and why did he feel like you knew his pain a little too well? Why hadn’t he asked you that? Why hadn’t he caught onto that at the time?

Would he ever get a chance to ask you that now? 

Would he ever even see you again?

He turned over and sighed deeply, he was idiot for not taking your number, and now he couldn’t stop thinking about you, shutting his eyes one more time in a futile attempt to get some sleep, he vowed to himself to track you down again. He simply could not live the rest of his life without talking to you again, the only person who had seen straight through him in years. 

Getting out of bed he got up to throw some clothes into a small carry bag, he was going back to the small town he had accidentally stumbled upon earlier and he was going to find you. He had decided.

I hope you all realize soon that life is short and that in order to make the best of it you have to put aside things like “feeling embarrassed” and just do what you want to do, try all the things you want to try and make it so that when it will be your time to die you can look back with a content smile knowing that you’ve lived your whole life to its fullest.

to the ones awake at 4am with the worst intentions:

whatever you’re going through, it passes. i know you’ve heard this so many times and all you’re doing while reading this is rolling your eyes, but believe me, you get through it. you grow thicker skin with every wound you endure. you become stronger. of course you’ll still hurt, but it won’t always be like this. i promise you, one day you are going to be sitting in the living room of your home with the love of your life and your kids smiling so hard and thanking whatever you believe in that you made it. that day will come, but there will be days in between that suck. those days are crucial, they are important because even though they are trying to tear you down, you’re only going to rise higher. please don’t think that you have nothing to live for, there is the moon, the sun, the stars. there are galaxies out there and in your eyes and you will see your full potential, you just have to stay strong and hold on tight. and don’t you dare say that you aren’t strong because after everything that has happened, you’re still here, you’re still fighting, you’re still alive. i’ve been through what you’re going through; i know what it feels like to have your whole world swept up from under you. i know what it feels like to be up late at night with tears like streams falling from your eyes and wanting to die; hating life, resenting it. but there are days i’m completely in love with life. there are days i wake up and smile because i know that one day, i’m going to be happy. wait for that day.

And from all the smiles I’ve seen yours are the ones I crave for the most

“Our lives pass by so quickly that we don’t realize that there are so many precious moments to catch in [life]. In our daily life let’s record each and every moment and turn them into our memories. Let’s talk together, laugh together, sing together. That moment we share together unknowingly has already become special in our hearts. One month, you and I, the time we spent together, when we remember about this, it will be an amazing memory to us. That memory to you, I hope it will become your special daily life” - Taeyeon to her fans
