“The amazing thing is that every atom in your body came from a star that exploded.

And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand.

It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust.

You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements – the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life – weren’t created at the beginning of time.

They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars.

And the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode.

So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.” – Lawrence M. Krauss

Tenk at alt dette er ekte, dere. Jeg blir faktisk like fascinert av hvor vakkert universet er hver gang jeg ser slike bilder, for det er jo helt utrolig. Jeg har egentlig ikke ord jeg, så jeg bare lar bildene tale for seg selv denne gangen.


Selv om jeg ikke går gjennom noe lignende selv på nåværende tidspunkt blir jeg alltid så glad når jeg leser denne teksten. Det er litt som om jeg tenker at «OK, dersom/når den dagen kommer skal jeg nok komme meg sterkere ut av det til slutt.» Disse ordene burde virkelig gi alle dere der ute med kjærlighetssorg en stor håndfull med håp, og kanskje litt oppmuntring i tillegg? Jeg tenker i hvert fall at dersom jeg en dag får hjertet mitt knust så skal jeg ta fram denne teksten og lese den grundig, samt tenke og gjøre slik jenta som skriver her har gjort.

«Dear You,

When you ended our relationship after I surprised you on your birthday, the future looked dismal to me. I didn’t know what to do, I didn’t know what to think or feel. Our relationship just felt like one big mess. I wanted to clean it up but I didn’t know how to start – too many things were said and done. But it’s been four months after the breakup and guess what? I’m standing on my own two feet and people say that I look better than I ever did when I was with you. Although it hurts sometimes and I miss you every single day, I am at peace and my world has never felt so put together… so right.

I compared my current healing process to the first one I had to go through when I was in high school. I must say, I did a much better job today. It took me almost a year to get over a silly, little high school boy but it took me just a few months to get over you, my first real boyfriend. I ask myself how I did it. Besides of course the wisdom that comes with age, I think I really had no choice but to make myself strong. If I did otherwise, I would probably be the most bitter and broken girl right now. The things you did to me were unfathomable. You swallowed me, you put me down, and towards the end you treated me like I didn’t matter. Anyone who had to go through that would probably have the same reaction as I did.

But that night you broke up with me and made me walk in the pouring rain, I realized that I couldn’t play the role of the victim anymore. I was sick and tired of it. So I toughened my heart and my head. I became my own friend and told myself that I didn’t deserve this. So the past four months has been all about that. More than getting over you, it was about finding me and allowing myself to be loved by me, my loved ones, and by God. You made me crumble during the relationship and I wasn’t going to allow that to happen again after the relationship. So I built my world again. And I continue to do so.

Although you have hurt me like no one has, I still love and miss you. I still wish that things could be different but they’re not. And you know what? This time, it’s okay. I just hope that one day we can be great friends again – just like the way it started out. In the meantime, I’ll pray for you and hope for the best for your life. And as for me, I’ll give myself what I deserve. That’s what survivors, warriors, and fighters do. We pick ourselves up and we keep on living.

Always, Me»

Jeg kom over en tekst jeg fant i fjor, og kunne ikke gjøre annet enn å smile fra øre til øre. Det er så sant det som står, i tillegg til at det er så innmari viktig – kanskje viktigere enn du tror. Ofte kan mange av oss føle at vi ikke har så altfor stor innflytelse på de rundt oss og at vi ikke har evnen til å utgjøre store forskjeller for andres liv, men det trenger nødvendigvis ikke å være sant. Det er nemlig ikke så mye som skal til for å glede de fine menneskene vi har rundt oss, og muligens også gjøre en forskjell for dem en dag de ikke har det så bra. Kanskje bare det å gi et kompliment, eller det å fortelle en nær venn at du er glad i vedkommende kan gjøre en forskjell og ha mye å si for hvordan vedkommendes dag utviklet seg fra dårlig til litt bedre? Jeg har i hvert fall opplevd flere ganger før at dersom jeg har hatt en skikkelig dårlig dag og plutselig får et uventet kompliment eller en tekstmelding fra en venninne hvor det står «I ♥ you» eller «Savner deg», så gjør det noe med meg. Det får meg til å smile og glemme alt det vonde for en stund. Og det er jo ikke så vanskelig å gi noen du er glad i et kompliment eller si noen fine ord, er det vel? Så hvis du ikke har gjort det allerede i dag – gjør det nå! Det er dagens oppfordring fra meg til dere.

«Never let anyone go a day without letting them know how much you care about them. Your friends, your family, your crushes. You never know what they’re going through, and a kind word could save them from whatever crap they’re feeling. I’ve been struggling with self-image for years, and just a kind word from a friend or even a stranger can make me feel beautiful.

If someone only hears negative things about themself, they really believe it. So tell them how amazing they are, tell them what they mean to you. Don’t let them feel hopeless. Show them you love them. My friend lost one of her best friends to suicide. I am going to do everything in my power to make sure everyone knows that they are loved, so they have someone to lean on through their hopelessness.

Give someone love today. Give someone hope. The little things you do make a difference.»

I believe in pink.

I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.

I believe in kissing. A lot.

I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.

I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.

I believe that tomorrow is another day,
and i believe in miracles.
