2014 – An Amalgam of Quotes

At this time of year I always find myself reflecting quite a bit. There’s something about having a goodly number of days off in a row without many obligations and another year coming to a close that inspires me to look back. Strangely enough I also seem to find myself in the midst of transitions, perhaps even life conundrums, in December. In any event today I took a stroll through my tumblr archive, albeit a bit sparse in 2014 compared to years past, and was struck by some of the quotes that were important to me at the time I shared them. Like song lyrics that take on new meanings depending on your situation, these quotes felt worth sharing in one place as a look back on 2014…

“…and I said to someone I cared about, ‘I don’t understand why this hurts so much’, and she said, ‘it hurts because it mattered’…and that was a huge thing for me to realize that there are things in life that hurt because they were important”

- John Green

 “They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”

 “You’re going to cry, and you’re going to hurt. You’re going to wonder, and you’re probably going to blunder. You’re going to question and plead, asking “Why me?!” But in the end, you’re going to breathe. So breathe and breathe until you have gotten the ache out; breathe and breathe until you have forgotten the hurt. You will be different, but you will be better, whether it was from a broken heart or the loss of a dream. You’re still alive, and you’re getting much better.”

- T.B. LaBerge // You’re Going To Be Better (via tblaberge)
