Because sometimes, screw positivity

“Life’s a song, you don’t get to rehearse and every single verse can make it that much worse.”

That lyric really speaks to me at the moment, I am feeling a bit fed up and not so positive. I’m usually the one telling everyone else to be positive and that everything happens for a reason. Well I’m having one of those times where I don’t want to be positive and I want to know the reason for everything right now, doesn’t it sometimes seem like every time things start to come together something is thrown your way to derail it all?

For simply being you

Recently, after I return from choir practice, I get a little emotional. You see, I tend to not talk about things that bother me or go on, it’s always been who I am, how I’m most comfortable, it’ll never change.

And I think that’s why I write, I don’t like talking and I won’t unless I trust someone a hell of alot or really need to, I just prefer to deal with my own emotions and stuff and get on with it. I’ve always been inspired by strong women, some of my favourite quotes are from the following two actresses:

“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” Marilyn Monroe

“I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.” Audrey Hepburn

I love these and they are very much the same as what I believe in.
