"Do you ever think about all the people who you might have fallen in love with if only you’d taken a different way home or stood a little longer in the bread aisle at the supermarket? All the people who might have been an integral part of your life but instead you’ll never know them. The unimaginable impact that our mundane choices have on our lives really gets to me. Think of how many times I might have died if I’d made different choices. Maybe I’d be homeless. Maybe I’d be famous. Maybe I’d be rich. Sometimes I’m so overwhelmed by the impact of my choices that I can’t choose anything at all because I’m afraid today will be the day that I make the choice that changes everything."
Often a fixture at fairs, parties and carnivals, people sat in the crescent of a smiling “paper moon,” as if lifted to the stars. A photographic phenomena primarily of the early half of the 20th century, it captivated the imagination of a world pre-Photoshop and gave many a memorable image of great times.
I seriously need to take a step back and re-evaluate myself. I’ve slipped into a dark place that definitely isn’t me. I’ve slowly started turning into someone who I never thought I’d be: a jealous, neurotic, insecure girl.
If I don’t do some self discovering I’m afraid of what the outcome will be. I don’t even want to think about that, because I won’t let it happen.
"I feel like a part of my soul has loved you since the beginning of everything.
Maybe we’re from the same star."
