"How well do any of us really know each other? Even families have theit secrets. They say blood is thicker than water. But it’s also a lot harder to clean up when it spills. Maybe it’s not blood bonds that make us a family. Perhaps it’s the people who know our sectrets and love is anyway. So we can finally be ourselves.
"Well, well Upper East siders, I got my answer after all and it turns out the only thing expanding at the Waldorf residence is the help. Yet thinking about expectations. The thing about expectations is most of the time someone else sets them for you. Yet you feel they’ve been there all along and you can’t wait to live up to them. But just because you know what’s expected of you doesn’t mean you still can’t surprise everyone. Nothing stays hidden for long. And you often find what you least expect is right in front of you, waiting to change everything forever. Whether you want to or not. XOXO"
"Transitions in life are usually marked by major events, birthdays, graduations, weddings; but the greater transitions often come out of smaller moments, when we stop and look at who we are, because each time we see how far we have come, we also see how far we still have to go. In order to fully transform, we might need to free ourselves of everything we’ve been holding on to, to send us on our new path, the right one. But if at the end, you find the person you have become is not the person you want to be. You can always turn around and try again. And maybe the next time you won’t be so alone when it’s over, too late to turn back now…..XOXO Gossip Girl"
