top of the rock

February 27, 2014 | 264 SHARES

Three levels of absolute breathtaking views. Welcome to the Top of the Rock. It’s $27 to get access to the three levels. There’s even a section to sit and relax and charge your phone. Now that I’ve visited, and if I had to choose, I’d choose this over the Empire State Building observatory any day. (If you want to compare views, head over here.)

If you want to get both the day and night views, head on over about an hour before sunset. Stay for around two hours and you’ll get to experience both. I went on a weekday afternoon and the line was around 10 minutes (including security check).

There are moments when I wish the world would stop so I could stop moving. There are moments when I get so overwhelmed that all I want to do is quit. There are moments when I am so tired that I cannot even rest.  And in these moments, I look back only to see how far I've come. And the road ahead is not short, it's not easy and sometimes I have no idea where I'm going.  People have failed me when I needed them the most. Those who I never looked twice at ended up becoming the best friends I've ever had. I've made more mistakes in my life than I can count. But you've got to know that you're not alone.  And even if you have no one paying your bills, no one who believes in your dreams, no one to pull you up when you are down, no one to call when you're crying yourself to sleep at night - you have to know that you are going to be okay.  And that this period of time when you think you've got it the worst, is exactly what you need to go through to find the strength to live the life you've always dreamed of - the life that you deserve. Don't ever give up on yourself. ?
Sky above me. City below me. Fire within.

If only my heart could speak the words my mind wants to say; if only my mind could stay silent instead of getting in the way.

Life is not meant to be perfect, and neither are we. We're born to be imperfect, bred to be passionate, more or less placed in uncomfortable situations to become who we're meant to be through this journey - unique, full of soul, adorned with scars healed through tears carrying hearts filled with love. #morningxmusings ?
Sometimes I wish that I could tell my head to get out of my heart, and my heart to get out of my head. Maybe then I'd do what's best for me.
You cannot be afraid to fall, stumble, scrape your knees, sink beyond your comfort zone. You have to drown out the voices of doubt, swallow your pride, and forgive yourself when you make mistakes along the way. Because you will. You cannot let the fear of failure prevent you from following your dreams. Because if you do give into your fears, you will be safe - grounded. You will be comfortable. But if you do not jump, remember one thing - you will NEVER be able to fly.

Never lose hope. ?
The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow.
