Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Maybe its not about the happy ending, maybe its about the story.
The purpose of life is a life of purpose.
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. Happiness is a direction, not a destination.
Thank you for existing. Be happy, be free, believe, forever young.
You know my name, not my story.
You have heard what Ive done, but not what Ive been through.
Love is like glass, looks so lovely, but its easy to shatter.
Love is rare, life is strange, nothing lasts and people change.
Life is only bad if you make it bad.
Remember that life is full of ups and downs, without the downs the ups dont mean anything.
Im waiting to fall in love with someone I can open my heart to.

Have a nice day.
