Remembering How I Met Your Mother

20 September 2016

My boyfriend playfully (and I use the term loosely) scolds me whenever I look back at grievances other people have done to me, saying I should stop living in the past and memories shouldn't hurt me anymore. But I can't help it if certain things affected me so much that I can still remember - vividly - the feelings I felt when I first felt them, months (and years, even) after. They're not all bad memories, anyway. There are a lot of good memories too, but I guess pain leaves deeper marks than happiness.

Whew, what an emo introduction. Whatever. I'm getting cheese fries. 

I don't know, but I guess now is a good time as any to remember my favorite TV show in the world.

Happy 11th Anniversary, you guys. ♥
I'll make this short and sweet since I've written about How I Met Your Mother a LOT of times already (I even have watercolor paintings inspired by the show, of which this one is my favorite), but I just wanted to highlight here my favorites.



The Yellow Umbrella
Because there are a lot of things that happened in my life that can attest to this quote:

"The great moments of your life won't necessarily be the things you do. They'll also be the things that happen to you. Now I'm not saying you can't take action to affect the outcome of your life. You have to take action. And you will! But never forget that on any day, you could step out the front door and your whole life could change forever. You see, the Universe has a plan kids, and that plan is always in motion. A butterfly flaps its wings and it starts to rain. It's a scary thought, but it's also kind of wonderful. All these little parts of the machine constantly working... Making sure that you end up exactly where you're supposed to be, exactly when you're supposed to be there. The right place, at the right time."

Like it blows my mind how I landed my previous job AND my current job, as well as my missed connections with Miah that could've made us meet years ago. Should've, could've, would've, but things happened the way they're supposed to happen. Amazing.

Some of my favorite quotes from the show

Thank you, Ted Mosby, Marshall Eriksen, Robin Scherbatsky, Barney Stinson, Lily Aldrin, and Tracy McConnell. Thank you, MacLaren's. You don't know the impact of your show to my life but I am so grateful to you for bringing these characters to life. Thank you, Ed, for introducing this show to me. I am grateful you're my friend, and I'm grateful I listened to you when you told me that I MUST watch this show.

From this post:

"An affirmation of hopefulness and optimism... A valentine to things like friendship and love." No sweeter words from the creators could have been spoken. Thank you, Carter and Craig.
