Sometimes I wish I was 29 with my life figured out & sometimes I wish I was 5 with my whole life ahead of me and not a care in the world

Sometimes I remind myself that I almost skipped the party, that I almost went to a different college, that the whim of a minute could have changed everything and everyone. Our lives, so settled, so specific, are built on happenstance.
I still love the people I’ve loved, even if I cross the street to avoid them.
That was the thing. You never got used to it, the idea of someone being gone. Just when you think it’s reconciled, accepted, someone points it out to you, and it just hits you all over again, that shocking.
― Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever (via observando)
Failure is inevitable. Unavoidable. But it should never get the last word. You have to hold on to what you want. You have to not take “no” for an answer, and take what’s coming to you. Never give in. Never give up. Stand up. Stand up, and take it.
