When I think about loving you, I tear up. And maybe it’s the period hormones fucking me up tonight, but I’ve been so head over heels about loving you lately. Honestly, seeing other people getting into new relationships and talking about all the cute stuff you do in the beginning gives me all kinds of crazy butterflies. I automatically think Spencer, and it brings me back to stepping off that plane and being in your arms for the first time and thinking that this was it, that was where I was meant to be. Everything else that had happened before didn’t matter. I used to be jealous of all the people that had normal relationships because they lived ten minutes away from each other, but then I remember that it took us five months to finally get to have our first date and our first kiss, and I’m thankful because it doesn’t seem that long ago. I miss the firsts. It’s sad to think you’ll never get to have another first date again, because I wish every date was the first date, but with you I feel it every time. I’m always so grateful I fell into the most amazing relationship I could ever ask for. It has taught me so many incredible lessons I needed to learn. How to love, how to be loved, what a family is like, a sense of work ethic, how to be open, the importance of setting goals, a meaningful life, and not settling. I never knew I needed all of that until I met you. You’ve revamped my life in more ways than one and I can never thank you enough for making me a better person in this world and saving me from myself. I’ll never get tired of loving you.

So, I got this tattoo a few months ago. I didn’t tell anyone because this means so much to me and I didn’t want people to know this stuff about me. It’s not just a tattoo. It means that I stopped cutting. I wasn’t sure if I should post this or not but a friend of mine wanted to see it. So, if I post this, I at least want people to know the story behind it. The lightning bolt stands for my favorite book. Struck By Lightning written by Chris Colfer. (If you haven’t read it yet, you should definitely go to the next bookstore and buy it! It’s so worth it!) This story helped me to survive High School. I don’t know what I would have done without it. Carson was everything I ever wanted to be and he taught me so much. I’m still not totally like him but I’ve gotten so much better and so much stronger. This little lightning bolt is a reminder that I can do everything I want to and that it’s worth fighting for your dreams! It is also a reminder that I have survived and that I can do it again. I don’t have to hurt myself. I have amazing friends that I can talk to and who are there for me if I need them. I have come so far and I’m proud of me! I know I could have done it without this book but it would have taken me so much longer. I also know that Chris is never going to read this, but if you do, I just wanted to say thank you! This book means the world to me! P.s. English is not my first language therefore I’m really sorry for all the mistakes I made!

In what grade do we stop believing in ourselves? In what grade do we stop believing period? Someone has to be a Nobel Peace Prize winner. Someone has to be a ballerina. Why can’t it be us?

Carson Phillips (Chris Colfer), Struck by Lightning (2012)

I rewatched this movie in honour of Chris’s birthday and it really hit me how much of an under-appreciated genius he is, Carson and Chris. 

Happy birthday, Chris! <3
