Words I Live By

"Sometimes, good things fall apart, so better things can fall together."

To me, this quote means you're in a good place and things are going ok when out of the blue, everything just goes downhill and you get blindsided. It hurts because you're thinking, "hey, things were going ok, why did this suddenly happen to me?"  But then it's like, "ok, even though I'm in pain right now, it's ok.  Some sort of change has occurred in my life, and it hurts now, but eventually something else will come along that makes me happier than whatever it is I just lost."  You can get through a challenging experience because you know that there is a reason it happened, an that reason is that life is going to be better in the long run.

Essentially, I like the optimism of this quote.  It's saying that there's always some sort of silver lining.  It's about seeing the big picture.  It's taking what's good in your life and making it better.  

The picture I chose is of my boyfriend and I.  I love this picture because I think it is funny.  I have a weird look on my face and you can't even see his, but you kinda wonder what he is doing.  We broke up and got back together, but breaking up forced us to focus on what wasn't working in our relationship and now we are a lot stronger.  At the time it was hard, but now I know it was worth it.  It was good, but now it is better.  good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
