Fresh starts. Thanks to the calendar, they happen every year - just set your watch to January. Our reward for surviving the holiday season is a new year. Bringing on the great tradition of new years resolutions. Put your past behind you and start over. It’s hard to resist the chance of a new beginning, a chance to put the problems of last year to bed.
Who gets to determine when the old ends and the new begins? It’s not a day on a calendar, not a birthday, not a new year. It’s an event, big or small, something that changes us. Ideally, it gives us hope, a new way of living and looking at the world, letting go of old habits, old memories. What’s important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning, but it’s also important to remember that amid all the crap are a few things really worth holding on to.
— Grey’s Anatomy (via chaotique)
Fake faces everywhere I see,
Fake people looking back at me
Sit down, don’t tell me…
where I don’t belong
All you better-thans that fed us shit,
Will be knocked on the floor,
So don’t you place your bets just yet…
— From First To Last - The Latest Plague
"You have made me brave, little monsters. And I promised myself that now I’m gonna be brave for you. Tonight I want you to free yourself. I want you to let go of all your insecurities. I want you to reject anyone or anything that has ever made you feel like you don’t belong. Or perhaps you don’t you feel like you fit in or you’re not good enough. Or that you’ll never go anywhere or achieve anything. Maybe you feel like you’ve been told that you’re not pretty enough, or thin enough, or can’t write a good song well enough, or sing well enough or dance well enough. Or you’ll never fill and arena because you’re too gay. You just remember that you’re a superstar and you were born that way. And when you leave tonight, don’t leave loving me more. Leave loving yourself more."
— Lady Gaga
"Fame is now injectable….
…Lives become incredible
Now, please understand that,
I can’t slow down
I won’t be waiting for you
I can’t stop now…
…Ain’t got no time to pretend
Don’t fuck around,
This is our last chance"
My Chemical Romance - Planetary (Go)
I only hear the words I need to…
"It’s hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small"
— Phil Collins (Cyndi Lauper) - True Colors
"You have to be strong and you have to pay attention to the positive. And in doing so, you will push through and you will rise up and you will live life to the fullest. It gets better when it’s up to you."
— Adam Lambert

"If you’re wondering if I want you to,
I want you to!
So make a move!
‘Cause I ain’t got all night!"
— Weezer - (If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To
"Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity."
— Gilda Radner
