If you don’t get excited when you’re about to kiss someone then you probably shouldn’t be kissing them. It should get you riled up inside and should not be mediocre. (via l-yps)

This is how you lose her.

You lose her when you forget to remember the little things that mean the world to her: the sincerity in a stranger’s voice during a trip to the grocery, the delight of finding something lost or forgotten like a sticker from when she was five, the selflessness of a child giving a part of his meal to another, the scent of new books in the store, the surprise short but honest notes she tucks in her journal and others you could only see if you look closely.

You must remember when she forgets.

You lose her when you don’t notice that she notices everything about you: your use of the proper punctuation that tells her continuation rather than finality, your silence when you’re about to ask a question but you think anything you’re about to say to her would be silly, your mindless humming when it is too quiet, your handwriting when you sign your name in blank sheets of paper, your muted laughter when you are trying to be polite, and more and more of what you are, which you don’t even know about yourself, because she pays attention.

She remembers when you forget.

You lose her for every second you make her feel less and less of the beauty that she is. When you make her feel that she is replaceable. She wants to feel cherished. When you make her feel that you are fleeting. She wants you to stay. When you make her feel inadequate. She wants to know that she is enough and she does not need to change for you, nor for anyone else because she is she and she is beautiful, kind and good.

You must learn her.

You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.

You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.

And, this is how you keep her.

Real Friends “Van Wrap Tour” signed shirt
This is our band’s 10th year playing as a band. That’s right, we were like fetuses when we first played together. And I have not grown an inch. But really, the last ten years have been absolutely insane, a lot of ups, a lot of downs but that’s just life not so much about being a band. I’m sure you know that too, you know, something that I have to continue to learn all the time is that in the morning, when you wake up, you have a decision to make. And that’s if you want to press on and smile and think positive or just kinda wallow around in self pity. And I just really want to emphasize that it is a choice. While we were writing this new album 2 years ago, we had this song that kind of came up out of no where and I realized I was making a lot of those choices. So I want you to know that if you leave with anything, remembering anything, please remember this. No matter how hazy or foggy the future looks, no matter how high up the wall is in front, when you wake up in the morning please decide to put one foot in front of the other and walk that wall down. You will do it! The best part about is that, from my experience is that what is on the other side is always worth the wait and the effort. Hayley Williams, Monumentour, July 26 (via boidurie)
