    Overcoming difficulty was dare I say,

    character-building. I don't by any means intend to romanticize adversity, however, it can make us more compassionate to each other, and even ourselves. I wish that for everyone. It is like buying your own car when you are a teen. You appreciate & take care of it much better if...

    I do not tell that my life is just beautiful.

    And I'm not saying that the world is just bad. Somewhere in between, I found my center and take the path that is meant for me. Nothing in life is permanent, sometimes everything changes suddenly. Even if it's hard to understand and accept destiny, don't doubt it. It will...

    So now that lesson led to another mainly

    that very few can be trusted, that the world is always sending messages to me to try to get me back. Thought about all the misery around me, what is to be done? Then it came to me, nothing. First I did not cause it. Feel badly but can't change it. Walk away with sadness...

    I hate being forced to do things.

    I like to do what I want, whenever I want, and I would be able to, if it weren't for the man-made restrictions of this world.

    What matters to me is my independence.

    That I'm not bound by worldly concerns and I know what is right and what isn't, so do you. I live in the world but not a part of it. In the time I've been here, haven't seen things get better mostly worse or at best different, not better. This is my introduction to my story...

    Given the gift of freedom has increased my

    understanding about this life, my life. In the beginning, things were not clear for me, what should I do, how should I act, what I should be. Life was a mess, emotionally and unstable. The first thing I did was to empty myself and to be quiet, stopped the thinking and waited...

    I am in competition with no one.

    No interest in playing the game of being better than anyone. I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday.

    Society is quick to tell you to be yourself,

    and being original is ok. But even quicker to tell you you're wrong if your opinion or way of thinking isn't politically correct.

    My main goal in life is to live

    as freely as possible and be surrounded by people who feel the same. To often I've found myself stuck in routines but to live spontaneously and be happy is something I aspire for in life.

    Being a free-spirit is freeing.

    It is nice to just be who you are. I am thankful for being alive, and beginning to do things I have put off that are an integral part of who I am; a creative, and happy person. Overcoming adversity has made me appreciate life so much more :)

    "If you have to force it,

    The happiest people are the ones

    who are living the life they love, And who are loving the life they live. This best describes what I aspire to day to day...with every choice I make...with every person I connect with. Happiness. It's a choice.

    I am a free spirited gal.

    Most of my life...a gypsy. Flying by the seat of my pants. My man, a rigid, emotionally controlled, silent soul, a great business man living in the fast lane. His character has balanced me and vice versa. Now we soar together, living happily ever after.

    If you must walk alone,

    do so, boldly If life gives you company, enjoy. If you're living with questions, honour them. If ignorant beings spit venom on you, take that too, but never to your heart.

    appendage to story #1.

    By free spirit I mean that you can't just do whatever you want. You have responsibilities for yourself and your character but you do have choices such as whom you wish to associate with. If theres too much drama, walk away.

    I am free. I'm an orphan,

    and that means so much of life for me is changed and more free. Obligations to our parents is one major aspect of family control. I live with my uncle and his two sons.

    so I learned and still do. its occurred to me, that we are all puppets as long as we dance to the worlds tune and believe what it says. There is a kind of price for this kind of thinking. You will be separated, you won't be a belonger, you won't fit in but you'll be free at last...
