Had I known

"Had I known that the heart breaks slowly, dismantling itself into unrecognizable plots of misery... had I known yet I would have loved you, your brash and insolent beauty, your heavy comedic face and knowledge of sweet delights, but from a distance I would have left you whole and wholly for the delectation of those who wanted more and cared less." -- Maya Angelou

Here Comes the Sun

I want to make mistakes in my life, I want to make plenty of them, I just don't want to make the same ones. I once believed that it took something away from me. I believed that you, him, her, them, it, you all took something away from me, but then I realized that I am the one who decides whether or not you take something away from me. As Maya Anagelou once said, "I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it." therefore, I have the power, and I refuse to be powerless.

My life is going somewhere great. I feel it. The universe has always had bigger plans for me than I could have ever imagined for myself.
