“Don’t fall into the trap of nostalgia. The future will create new memories.”
Thinking bout all of those days I left behind
Nowadays it seems I’m watching life just pass me by
The world is spinning beneath my feet at an unforgiving pace
And I, I just find myself falling victim to the chase
If only I could take it back to the days when I was younger
Then maybe I would cherish that moment I grew older
Finally I understand that time won’t wait for no one
I can’t live in the past…
“On and On”, by Jay Sean
The broken clock is a comfort
It helps me sleep tonight
Maybe it can stop tomorrow
From stealing all my time
And I am here still waiting though
I still have my doubts
I am damaged at best, like you’ve already figured out
I’m falling apart
I’m barely breathing
With a broken heart
That’s still beating
The broken locks were a warning
You got inside my head
I tried my best to be guarded,
I’m an open book instead
I still see your reflection, inside of my eyes
They are looking for a purpose
They’re still looking for life
‘Broken’, by Lifehouse
Do you know where your heart is?
Do you think you can find it?
Or did you trade it for something, somewhere
Better just to have it…
Do you know where your love is?
Do you think that you lost it?
You felt it so strong,
But nothing’s turned out how you wanted…

Scott Taylor Idus once wrote: “Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone. And do not trouble about the future for it is yet to come. Live in the present and make it so beautiful, that it will be worth remembering.”

No, we’re not gonna waste another moment in this town
And we won’t come back
The world is calling out
We’ll leave the past in the past,
Gonna find the future.
If misery loves company,
Well, so long!
You’ll miss me when I’m gone…

If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to. – Dorothy Parker
Every once in a while people step up, they rise above themselves. Sometimes they surprise you, and sometimes they fall short. Life is funny sometimes, it can push pretty hard, but if you look close enough you find hope in the words of children, in the bars of a song and in the eyes of someone you love. And if you’re lucky, I mean if you’re the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back.
One Tree Hill, 3.20 – “Everyday Is a Sunday Evening”
Break, all my thoughts hit the floor
Like I’m making the score
I’m the king of the world
I’m a popular man
Count my zeros to ten
If you can’t, well I can
Don’t let anyone wake me!
I’m dreaming out loud…
Dreaming Out Loud, by OneRepublic
Once upon a time, there was this little sparrow, who while flying south for the winter, froze solid and fell to the ground. And then, to make matters worse a cow crapped on him, but the manure was all warm and it defrosted him. So there he is, warm and happy to be alive and he starts to sing. A hungry cat comes along and he clears off the manure and he looks at the little bird and then he eats him. And the moral of the story is this: everyone who craps on you is not necessarily your enemy, and everyone who gets you out of crap is not necessarily your friend. And if you’re warm and happy wherever you are you should just keep your big mouth shut.
