Not in our dreams or our hopes but in the known, the comfortable, the familiar. -Meredith Grey

  • The body is a slave to its impulses. But the thing that makes us human is what we can control. After the storm, after the rush, after the heat of the moment has passed, we can cool off and clean up the messes we made. We can try to let go of what was. -Meredith Grey

Every minute of every day
  • "Grief may be a thing we all have in common but it looks different on everyone. It isn’t just death we have to grieve. It’s life, it’s loss, it’s change. And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, it has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime. That’s how you stay alive when it hurts so much you can’t breathe. That’s how you survive. By remembering that one day somehow, impossibly, it won’t feel this way. It won’t hurt this much. Grief comes in it’s own time for everyone in it’s own way. So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.

It put me on the path to becoming a surgeon. My point is sometimes the best gifts come in really surprising packages” -Meredith Grey
  • It wasn’t cause I thought I’d be happy alone, it’s easier to be done, because what if you learn that you need love and you don’t have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage, it’s like dying. The only difference is death ends. This?
