If your heart is beating, then you are a drum. Stay interested in your heartbeat, and you will find yourself a drummer. If you are breathing, then you are a song. Stay interested in your breathing, and you will find yourself singing. If you are alive, then you are a dance. Stay interested in your life and you can’t help but find yourself dancing.

I remember crying over you and I don’t mean a couple of tears and I’m blue. I’m talking about collapsing and screaming at the moon.

I guess you never really understand love once you’ve experienced it. Some think it’s a magical thing filled with romance and dreams, but in reality it can be a scary journey. Some don’t understand how fearful it is to let someone in, to be completely vulnerable. But I’m not saying it doesn’t have perks. It does. And they can be awesome.

You cannot use someone else’s fire; you can only use your own. And in order to do that, you must first be willing to believe you have it.

Dare to love every person, including yourself. Become the energy of love.
