“The Day You Read This”
Jeg elsker at læse digte og citater, og det har jeg altid gjort. Ind imellem falder jeg over de rigtig gode af slagsen, dem der hænger ved. De kan vende hele mit humør og minder mig om, hvordan vi skaber vores egen virkelighed, gennem vores tanker og handlinger.
I Wrote This For You er en af mine yndlingsforfattere. Hjemmesiden er fuld af fantastiske, stemningsfulde digte. Min favorit hedder “The Day You Read This“.
Det er ved at være længe siden at jeg læste det første gang, men alligevel får jeg kuldegysninger ved hver genlæsning. Og i dag fik jeg lyst til at dele det med jer :)
The Day You Read This
“On this day, you read something that moved you and made you realise there were no more fears to fear. No tears to cry. No head to hang in shame. That every time you thought youâd offended someone, it was all just in your head and really, they love you with all their heart and nothing will ever change that. That everyone and everything lives on inside you. That that doesnât make any of it any less real.
That soft touches will change you and stay with you longer than hard ones.
That being alone means youâre free. That old lovers miss you and new lovers want you and the one youâre with is the one youâre meant to be with. That the tingles running down your arms are angel feathers and they whisper in your ear, constantly, if you choose to hear them. That everything you want to happen, will happen, if you decide you want it enough. That every time you think a sad thought, you can think a happy one instead.
That you control that completely.
That the people who make you laugh are more beautiful than beautiful people. That you laugh more than you cry. That crying is good for you. That the people you hate wish you would stop and you do too.
That your friends are reflections of the best parts of you. That you are more than the sum total of the things you know and how you react to them. That dancing is sometimes more important than listening to the music.
That the most embarrassing, awkward moments of your life are only remembered by you and no one else. That no one judges you when you walk into a room and all they really want to know, is if youâre judging them. That what you make and what you do with your time is more important than youâll ever fathom and should be treated as such. That the difference between a job and art is passion. That neither defines who you are. That talking to strangers is how you make friends.
That bad days end but a smile can go around the world. That life contradicts itself, constantly. That thatâs why itâs worth living.
That the difference between pain and love is time. That love is only as real as you want it to be. That if you feel good, you look good but it doesnât always work the other way around.
That the sun will rise each day and itâs up to you each day if you match it. That nothing matters up until this point. That what you decide now, in this moment, will change the future. Forever. That rain is beautiful.
And so are you.”
