“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
I think that the reason I’m so hesitant to start something with you, is that I am terrified of it ending.
I talk to you as to a friend
I hope that’s what you’ve
come to be
It feels as though we’ve
Like we found a way
