"You write such pretty words,
But life's no storybook.
Love's an excuse to get hurt.
And to hurt.
Do you like to hurt?
I do, I do.
Then hurt me."
Do you ever have one of those days where you just need to get away.. from everyone, everything, from life? Yeah me too. Beaches do wonders for thinking and escaping. I used to go there at night just to stare at the waves with my iPod and racing brain. It had been a very long time since I had done that, but a good friend recently reminded me just how much it can help and take you away.
It's kind of perplexing how epiphanies come in bunches. I usually don't get them one at a time. Is that normal? I want so much! I want so much out of life. And I wont stop till I have it all. Do you know what I'm talking about? Passion. For life. To help others, to go places, to make a difference, to do something. mmmm.
A lot of you asked me what I'm thankful for. What is Daniele Donato thankful for? My word I'm thankful for a lot.
-I'm thankful that after two liver transplants, 12 years later my grandmother is alive and well when the average life span after one transplant is only eight years.
-I'm thankful that I was never handed anything in life so I can appreciate value.
-I'm thankful that I have a roof over my head + everything that comes with it.
-I'm thankful that a stupid reality show taught me that in life you need family even if they're not what you think is the typical definition of family.
-I'm thankful for every person in my life.
-I'm thankful that I know my downfalls and that I am going to try to work on them.
-I'm thankful for all the obstacles life throws me, for trials, and for tears, because I always say 'whatever tears you down only builds you up that much stronger' you make choices in your life, you choose your own paths and those paths determine the person you become. [but of course I'm not thankful for all of this at the time it's happening haha]
I think in life that you have this vision of what is to happen. I'm talking about in every aspect and situation of life. You have this idea of what it's going to be, or rather what it is supposed to be. I think that is how we get hurt so often. We get this fictitious idea of how perfect each upcoming situation in our life can be, but when it doesn't turn out "perfect" we are let down. But why can't it be flawed. Why can't we be happy with imperfection? Isn't that what makes us all different to begin with? Our imperfections. If every person were perfect, life would be so grey. It makes people different, and it makes life and it's situations different. Like i said, it's just how you handle it. Sorry, I'm rambling. I guess what I'm trying [not succeeding] to say is that I'm thankful for whatever is handed to me. Perfection to me, is being flawed. I'm not looking for utopia. I'm content with a life that is flawed.
Oh, and thanks for all the get well wishes. It's definitely not strep throat. I've had that before and it's not that at all. Just a very bad cold. :[ I'm getting a bit better though. I think I've OD'd on OJ. hah. another ps,. i took that picture ^ in Rainbow. Oooh Kail. I need to go visit Kailness. Love Her guts!
