Broken Fragments

"I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken - and I’d rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived." –Margaret Mitchell

I just had to share this! Margaret is just fascinating! Most people settle for less– They accept their usual routines which includes the person they are with. Either scared shit less of change or the thought of starting all over with another person is sufficient enough for that person to remain there. This has been worded by many authors and various singers. Lady Gaga's quote is straight to the point, "Trust is like a mirror, you can fix it if it's broken but you can always see the crack in that motherfucker's reflection." Regardless, of the wording, it has been recited over and over. Just remember your own happiness is worth more than anything else in this world. And don't ever base your happiness on that person. Don't let them be the reason why you're happy, let them be the reason you're just that much happier. You see? Happy, Happier. Food makes me happy, books enlighten me, a hot cup of tea cleanses a bad day away, my sons' eskimo kisses warm me up like nothing else in this world can but eventually I'll find a man that will make me just that much happier. If you're not happy with yourself, especially when your alone, how in the hell could you possibly make another person happy? Misery is like a bad cold, if around you constantly, you'll eventually catch it yourself. You have to break yourself from all of that. Find a good place and settle yourself in it. And then just breathe. Better yourself and then worry about others. Set the tracks down in place and then let the party train start rolling. All in sequence, all in good timing. Peace.
