Last week, I did the Three Quotes Challenge, and today I’m doing a sequel to it because
1) I hoard quotes like Smaug hoards gold…
2) Fellow blogger Annabeth was the first to nominate me weeks ago for the challenge but I completely forgot about it…
So, to honor Annabeth’s nomination, I give you: 3 Quotes, 1 Day, Part 2, with a love-inspired twist since it’s the last week of February.
QUOTE 1: WHAT IS FIRST LOVE?
This quote from one of my favorite Korean dramas (Kill Me Heal Me) is also responsible for one of the most poetic descriptions of first love I’ve ever come across. Do you guys agree? How would you define first love if not this?
QUOTE 2: FAMILY BONDS
“The bond that links to your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.”
Criminal Minds never fails to deliver quotes that stay with you long after the episode ends. This quote in particular reminds me that family is truly defined not by what runs in our veins, but by what dwells in our hearts.
QUOTE 3: SELF LOVE
Once when I was running,
from all that haunted me;
to the dark I was succumbing-
to what hurt unbearably.
Searching for the one thing,
that would set my sad soul free.
In time I stumbled upon it,
an inner calm and peace;
and now I am beginning,
to see and to believe,
in who I am becoming-
and all I’ve yet to be.
Finally, a reminder from Lang Leav to love and take care of yourself first and foremost. That means learning to set yourself free, being true to who you are, and letting yourself become who you’ve always had the potential to be.
BONUS! (For All My Fellow Criminal Minds Lovers)
Because I believe every woman deserves to be spoken to the way Derek Morgan speaks to Penelope Garcia. (And because my inner fangirl could not scroll past this gif without going “Squeee!”)
