Missing summer mornings ❤️ On the other hand, there is some beauty in the soft light if the sun as we head towards the winter solstice and the days get shorter ☀️ #iheartparisfr#parisphotographer#paris
In a world trying to make you believe that it’s better to be closed off, be nice. Be considerate. Be compassionate. Be the bigger person. Be tolerant. Be stronger than your heartbreak, your past and your pain. Be someone who knows how to love no matter how many times love has failed you. Be someone who knows how to be kind to a world that’s known for being mercilessly unkind.
In a world teaching you how to be aloof, unattached and distant, be brave, vulnerable and attentive. Be the one who cares more. Be the one who says ‘I love you’ first. Be the one who tries instead of the one who wonders what could have been. Be the one who knows how to live with a few bruises from getting knocked down instead of the one who’s afraid of getting hurt and misses out on all the fun.
In a world trying to tell you to live a lie, live the truth. Life gets easier when you accept yourself and know who you really are; with your flaws and your mistakes and your imperfections. It gets easier once you stop trying to pretend to be someone else because that’s just what the world favors or what people are more drawn to. It gets easier when you stop living according to what the world wants and start living according to what you want.
In a world trying to change your heart, learn how to fight for it. Learn how to keep spreading kindness, learn how to love harder because one thing I know for sure, when this world ends, you won’t remember the days you were cruel or heartless or scared. You’ll remember the times you fell in love, the memories that made you smile, the people who were there for you and the people you moved and inspired and loved along the way. When this world ends, you’ll only remember the love you shared and you’ll look back and realize how pointless everything else was.
