Salvation

“But if you tame me, then we
shall need each other.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

… and you did.

Nothing is easy. And becoming friends with the talented person you are is a path full of pitfalls ^^!!! Not very cool things happen, but I’ll get over it, I’m hopelessly hopeful ^^! Some people just don’t know what they’re doing and how they’re affecting people, and they don’t really care as they don’t know them… But listen… all these little and almost insignificant rocks on the road won’t wrecked my hopes. I’ve already written it, probably several times, and I’m writing it again: when two people are meant to become friends, no matter what’s gonna rise up against them, whether it is time, distance or whatsoever, they will eventually find a way to find each other again!

We’re different, that’s true! But what’s that?! An excuse?! We are special and different, and most of all… just the same too! We are humans before anything else in this world! Many people tend to think they are defined by what they’re doing for a living, but that’s just a characteristic of a person! People are defined by who they are inside, by their values, by their soul!

And YOU mate, you have a beautiful and kind soul, one of the most gentle I’ve ever known! If I could give you only one thing in life, I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes, only then would you realise how special you are to me. All around you there are people who are hurting, people who need your love, people who need your encouragement. So let God use your gifts and talents to bless them… Because they blessed me first 🙂 You might not know it at all, but you have been one of the first & only persons, who helped me write again and be more confident about my writing. I’ve come quite a long way since I met you… I got to know myself a bit better when it comes to what I needed to do to be happy… and writing is one of those things ;)! So I simply want to say THANK YOU for being kind of a salvation to me…

“I’m small, I’m young – and I’m so different. You’ve always respected that difference, and you’ve always trusted it. Trust me now. There’s a reason I am the way I am, and there’s a reason I was lead to you. There’s always a reason.”
Dean Koontz, Relentless

I don’t want anything I said or wrote to seem like a farewell, because nothing’s a farewell. Farewell is when there’s nothing else anymore, farewell is when even hope is gone! And you can trust me on that matter because, as Waterschoot once wrote, “I will never give up, just push harder because the thought of quitting is far worse than the temporary pain I’m feeling now”. I will always keep you with me, somewhere here, safe in my heart, you’ll be always on my mind, and this until we meet again… and we will (HOPE is my only motto! :p).

“Not to give up under any circumstances should be the motto of our life: we shall try again and again, and we are bound to succeed. There will be obstacles, but we have to defy them. So do not give up, do not give up! Continue, continue! The goal is ahead of you. If you do not give up, you are bound to reach your destined goal.”
Sri Chinmoy, The Jewels of Happiness: Inspiration and Wisdom to Guide Your Life-Journey

PS: Don’t let anyone change your soul, man, stay who you are, stay true to yourself & keep up. Wishing you all the very best this world has to offer. Will look to you… ALWAYS. X

“I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up, still looking up.”

I won’t give up – Jason MRAZ

Birthday Girl!

Screen Shot 2013-08-05 at 21.32.33

Oh my gosh! Time flies so quickly! I’m turning 19 today and I almost feel like I turned 18 yesterday whereas it was… well, a year ago :p! I must say that it’s quite a weird thing to think that it’s actually my last “teen” year, before the “big” 20, but that’s alright, that’s just the way things are supposed to happen, isn’t i?! ^^

And I don’t know about you, but every year, for every single birthday, I’ve got kind of a flashback of all these past years that makes me realise how lucky I am! Because even though it’s true to say that my family can’t really be granted this beautiful word that is “a family”, I feel extremely lucky when I think of my friends… whether they are the good old friends I’ve known like… forever or the ones I’ve met more recently! They’re all so very important to me, they are people as sweet as honey who managed to leave some of their sticky sweetness in my life, but above all… in my heart ❤!

I wish I could have spent this B-day with both English and French friends, so I’m not dedicating this post to myself (though it’s my birthday), but to these amazing people… all of them, whether they are British, French, Dutch or Australian! They all mean so much to me and they all have such a big part of my heart, that I honestly don’t really care where I’ll spend my birthday, because I know that whether it’s here or there, they’re in my heart… so wherever I might celebrate turning a year older, they’ll be with me and this is all that TRULY matters!

So here’s to them! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! ❤❤❤

With this, let’s…

Keep holding on to what and who we love & enjoy the ride of life 😉

MUCH LOVE ❤

xoxo

It’s YOU, it’s YOU, it’s all for YOU…

♪ Video Games – LANA DEL REY ♪

“There is a primal reassurance in being touched, in knowing that someone else, someone close to you, wants to be touching you. There is a bone-deep security that goes with the brush of a human hand, a silent, reflex-level affirmation that someone is near, that someone cares.”
― Jim ButcherWhite Night

YOU I met not a long ago, YOU who touched my soul, who touched my heart, YOU who reassured me, who made me feel safe, YOU who helped me (even unconsciously) find my smile back, YOU again who showed me the bright side of life when I needed it most, YOU who opened me a door to a new beginning, so to YOU… I simply want to say… I care about YOU.

Whatever brought YOU in my life, whatever it was, it was Heaven-blessed! And as one of my favourite songs tells it so well… “The skies began to clear and I was at rest”. Your only breath took me back home, a home that is not that far from my homeland, but which seems miles away when I’m far from YOU and the others…

I am totally aware that my words here might not be enough to make YOU feel how much I care, but as I also know words are not just words to YOU, I will count on them now until I get to see YOU again…

“A friendship that is Meant to be, is filled with things they mean to say.”
― Grant Vann

And I hope… I truly hope, from the bottom of my heart, that I will see you again very soon… but I’m scared. I’m scared to hear you say you can’t, you’re not free that day or whatsoever, I’m scared to hear or read the impossibility of a new reunion. So please, please because I don’t think I would survive it (again), because it would make me sad, it would make me cry, please… please, don’t say no.

“Do one thing every day that scares you.” Eleanor Roosevelt

Do YOU realise that because I’ve met YOU, YOU are not only a part of my life… but a part of me?! And that for this very special reason, I can’t totally be me, I can’t fully live this life YOU have introduced me to, if YOU are not, even a little, around me ?!

I will finish with what Marissa Mayer once wrote… “You can’t have everything you want, but you can have the things that really matter to you.” and because I care about YOU,  because I hold YOU dear & because YOU matter a lot to me, I don’t fret as easily as I used to… I know I’ll meet YOU again and I know everything’s gonna be alright!
