life's a climb, but the view is great

me, myself & i

hi there (: i'll be sixteen in a month, i am not very complicated. I like to write when I can't express my feelings any other way. I'm the type of girl who never assumes someone's not being honest with her, the type that collects quotes, bakes random stuff and overthinks things. Summertime's my favorite, rainy days are meant for sleeping in. Little kids are just awesome. Travelling, movie nights, and spending time with friends make me really happy. my name's Ana, that's as specific as i can be<3 .

call me random
'what I've learned is not to change who you are, because eventually you'll run out of new things to become' - Taylor Swift

Confiar, creer , soñar, todo eso es tener esperanza. Saber que aunque el mundo se nos venga encima y por más imposible que parezca hay algo que nos va a salvar, algo o alguien. Porque la esperanza no es un deseo, es una certeza, una certeza de que después de todas las tormentas sale el sol.

Being lonely ... being alone ... for many people ... sucks. I get it, I get it, I get it. But still I have to say that yes, my belief is that being with somebody who makes you feel shitty or doesn't honor the person you are is worse.

It is the possibility that keeps me going … and though you may call me a dreamer or a fool or any other thing, I believe that anything is possible. ~ The Notebook

I'm afraid of not having enough time. Not enough time to understand people, how they really are, or to be understood myself. I'm afraid of quick judgments and mistakes that everybody makes. You can't fix them without time. I'm afraid of seeing snapshots instead of movies.

Honestly, if you're not willing to sound stupid you don't deserve to be in love - A Lot Like Love

You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, every day we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours. And, my darling, you will always be mine. –The Notebook

At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place. But believe us when we say there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events, may in fact, be the first steps of a journey. – Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Sometimes i wonder if anything's absolute anymore. Is There Still right and wrong? Good and bad? Truth and lies? Or is everything negotiable,left to interpretation, grey. Sometimes we're forced to bend the truth, transform it, cause we're faced with things that are not of our own making. And sometimes things simply catch up to us. Truth is still absolute. Believe that. Even when that truth is hard and cold, and more painful than you've ever imagined. And even when truth is more cruel than any lie.

There comes a time when every life goes off course. In this desperate moment you must choose your direction. Will you fight to stay on the path while others tell you who you are? Or will you label yourself? Will you be honored by your choice? Or will you embrace your new path? Each morning you choose to move forward or to simply give up.

'Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact."

'Grownups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always explaining things to them." - the little prince

'To be nobody-but-yourself - in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.'" - E.E Cummings

Because, it's only when you’re tested that you truly discover who you are. - Lucas Scott

Don't be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble and fall because most of the time the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you'll get everything you wish for. Maybe you'll get more than you could have imagine. Who knows where life could take you. The road is long and in the end the journey is the destination. - One Tree Hill
thanks :]

i know i know this should've been a million years ago but yet here it is.

everyday we learn new things, and i mean everyday. even when we spend the whole day home in bed, a million things go through our heads and we learn. Lately i've learnt so much, about everything imaginable. I have learnt that even if you try your hardest, people are never going to be happy enough with you, it's like you're never good enough. Maybe a while ago i would've been traumatized with that but i guess it's fine with me now. Another thing is that you never stop getting surprises, good and bad. and people can prove you wrong when you least expect it.
Bravery, something everyone should have and very few people posess, and it's not about knights, its about facing what you fear the most, knowing that there is a chance you might fail and still doing it, because theres also the chance you wont. Dreaming, dreaming is for the brave, and it takes us to so many unthinkable places...

to all the dreamers and the brave hearts, you are true inspirations <3

dreams are great yes. they make us happy and all, it's like our own little world where everything's perfect and where you get exactly what you want. Dreams are like an escape, a place where you feel safe, where nothing you dont want to happen happens. But what happens when you wake up? when you finally realize that it was actually just a dream? when reality hits? when that happens, there is not much we can do, but try to live in the real world and cope with not having everything our way, wether we really like it or not. Sometimes I wish it worked somehow else, and my dreams were actually my reality...

so apparently i'm very different to everyone else. I never thought of it much, to be honest. I have never worried of what everyone else did, ive always done what i felt like at my own time. But it's amazing when I start figuring myself out, what I find. i am VERY far from knowing everything about anything, I still havent figured myself out completly. But what I know is that I am me, and that's pretty much it. Simple huh? Not really, because the concept 'me' can be translated into many different things, so let me explain what 'me' means in my case. For one, I am a girl, that has to say something, I like clothes and chic flicks and I tend to be emotional. Although considered girly i LOVE football, I pretty much watch ESPN instead of the Fashion TV, I still dont know exactly why. I have many friends, and try to be the best person with all of them, but my best friend AND favorite blonde is Lula. As simple as that sounds, it took a while for me to figure it out.
I have never ever harmed anyone on purpose. I have been let down, and I am pretty sure I've let down some people, although most of them have just misanderstood some of my actions. I have made mistakes, but I dont regret them, I never will. Every failure has been a lesson, and there's always a reason why things go the way they go.
I deeply miss someone, that's a fact, but although she's not here, she'll never be absent, if that makes any sense to you.
I have slights obsessions that change with time, i am irrevocalby a hopless romantic. I think that there's love for everyone out there, in every shape and form. I think that everyone has the need to feel loved and cared about, no matter who you are. And most of all I know that i have faith. While I breath I hope. I have faith in everyone, because the people I have to thank the most, are the people who have had faith in me, even when i didn't have faith in myself. Those people, are the ones that have taught me the most important lessons I have yet learned. Never ever give up on your dreams. When you try hard enough, anything is possible, you just have to let go of your fears, set yourself a goal, and you'll do things you never even imagined you could. 2010 has come as ' The year of no fear'. I think that motto has applied to my 14 days of this year so far. And that just happened thanks to all the people who have had faith in me, who have believed in me, and in some way have taught me important lessons in one way or another. So I just want to say thank you, to everyone, Im sorry, to the people that i've hurt in some way, and I love you, to my true friends, you know who you are.

What if ribbons and bows didn't mean a thing
Would the song still survive without five golden rings
Would you still wanna kiss without misletoe
What would happen if God never let it snow
What would happen if Christmas carols told a lie
Tell me what would you find

You'd see that today holds something special
Something holy, not superficial
So here's to the birthday boy who saved our lives
It's something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
So here's something you should know that is for sure
Christmas must be something more

What if angels did not pay attention to
All the things that we wished they would always do
What if happiness came in a cardboard box
Then I think there is something we all forgot
What would happen if presents all went away
Tell me what would you find

You'd see that today holds something special
Something holy, not superficial
So here's to the birthday boy who saved our lives
It's something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
So here's something you should know that is for sure
Christmas must be something more

We get so caught up in all of it
Business and relationships
Hundred mile an hour lives
And it's this time of year
And everybody's here
It seems the last thing on your mind

Is that the day holds something special
Something holy, not superficial
So here's to Jesus Christ who saved our lives
It's something we all try to ignore
And put a wreath up on your door
But here's something you should know that is for sure
Christmas must be something more

Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we're told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.

For many im a friend, a daughter, a sister, a counselor. A person who is eager to help, who goes with you anywhere, who never assumes someone's not being honest with her. For many im an intelligent girl, a girl who likes rock music, watching football games and reading
For others I may be a loser, a nerd, a freak or just someone they know.
But really, Im just a girl. A normal girl. I love to shop, eat a lot of chocolate, talk a lot, gossip and daydream about hollywood actors.
What can I do? I guess im all of these. The advisor, the rocker, and the freak. The shopaholic, the daydreamer and the bookworm. Regardless, I guess I'm okay with it. I don't mind eing labeled because I know who I am, and so do people who matter the most. So call me whatever, when it comes down to it, I'll always be me, and it will always be enough.

The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof. ~Barbara Kingsolver

But if you're always looking for reasons not to be with somebody, and you always find 'em, then I guess at some point maybe you should let go and give your heart what it deserves. – one tree hill

No matter who broke your heart, or how long it takes to heal, you'll never get through it without your friends. - sex & the city

Everyone wants life to run smoothly, but it's the mistakes that make life interesting. - Dawson’s Creek

Don’t fear failure so much you refuse to try new things. the saddest summary of life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.

We spend our whole lives searching for all the things we think we want... never really knowing what we have. -The Ataris

" 30 years from now it won't matter what shoes you wore, how your hair looked, or the jeans you bought. What will matter is what you learned and how you used it."

"Beginnings are usually scary and endings are usually sad, but it's everything in between that makes it all worth living."

"Oh yes, the past can hurt. But, you can either run from it or, learn from it." - the lion king

You can't live your life for other people. You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love. - the notebook

Worrying is like a rocking chair: it gives you something to do, but doesn't get you anywhere.

Don't be flattered that he misses you. He should miss you. You're deeply missable. However, he's still the same person who just broke up with you. Remember, the only reason he can miss you is because he's choosing, every day, not to be with you.

There are some hurts that you never completely get over. And you think time will diminish their presence and to a does. But it still hurts, because, well...hurt hurts.
-The Story of Us

You shouldn't have to sacrifice who you are just because somebody else has a problem with it.

The most important thing in life is your family. There are days you love them, and others you don't. But, in the end, they're the people you always come home to. Sometimes it's the family you're born into and sometimes it's the one you make for yourself. .

I'd like to tell today's youth that no matter where life takes you, big cities, small towns, you'll inevitably come across small minded people who think they're better than you. People who think that material things, or being pretty or popular, automatically make you a worthwhile human being. I'd like to tell today's youth that none of these things matter. Unless you have a stregth of character, intergtity, ... and if you're lucky enough to have any of these things, don't ever sell out. Don't ever sell out. So when you meet a person for the first time, don't judge them by their station in life, 'cause who knows, that person just might end up being your best friend

We talk like we know what's going on, but we don't. We don't know anything. We're really young and we're gonna screw-up a lot. We're gonna keep changing our minds and even sometimes our hearts. And through all that, the only real thing we can offer each other is forgiveness - dawson's creek
