“I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. Were always thinking that someday we’ll be happy. That we’ll get that car or that job or that person in our lives that will fix everything. But happiness is a mood, and it’s a condition, not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry. It’s not permanent. It comes and goes and that’s okay. And I feel like if people though of it that way, they’d find happiness a lot more often.”

If you had a friend you’d never see again, what would you say? If you could do one last thing for someone you loved. What would it be? Say it. Do it. Don’t wait. Nothing lasts forever.

~One Tree Hill
If you could go back and just change one thing about your life, would you? And if you did, would that change make your life better? Or would that change ultimately break your heart? Or break the heart of another? Would you choose an entirely different path? Or would you change just one thing? Just one moment. One moment that you’ve always wanted back. -one tree hill Because sometimes you have to step outside of the person you’ve been, and remember the person you were meant to be, the person you want to be, the person you are  -one tree hill
Sometimes when you’re young you think nothing can hurt you. It’s like being invincible. Your whole life is ahead of you and you have big plans. Big Plans. To find your perfect match, the one who completes you. But as you get older you realize it’s not always that easy. It’s not until the end of your life that you realize how the plans you made were simply plans. Because at the end when you’re looking back instead of forward you want to believe you made the most of what life gave you. You want to believe you’re leaving something good behind. You want it all to have mattered.

They say we leave this world just the way we came into it —- naked and alone.

So, if we do leave with nothing, What then, is a measure of a life ? Is it defined by the people we choose to love ?

Or is life simply measured by our accomplishments ?

And what if we fail ? or are never truly loved ? What then ? Can we ever measure up ?

Or will the quiet desperation of a life gone wanting, Drive us mad ?
