    Where Do I Belong?

    I know who I am, most of the time. I know my virtues and flaws, but I also know the parts of me that I can't figure if they are a virtue or a flaw. Sometimes they are both, but I never know which is better. I navigate my path daily, consciously searching for each step that...

    Think Less, Do More

    Lately I've had way too much free time and I haven't been spending it very well. My mind will just wander into unknown territory and I can't seem to stay foused. I need something I can focus on, something to get my mind off of things. I've had way too much time to think and...

    I Certainly Am.

    I am just a girl trying to find my way. I'm trying to find my way through life & it's not easy. In fact, it's very difficult, especially since most things are very difficult for me. It's hard to find my way through life when life is nothing more than an elusive dream. I have no...

    I’ve found that the more friends I make the

    more I forget myself. I get so caught up in gaining their trust and keeping their friendship that I lose myself along the way. I’ve become this stranger to myself and I’m not even sure who I am anymore. Or what I’ve become. It’s not something I do purposefully. It just...

    Where's My Path?

    I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I- I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. ~The Road Not Taken ~Robert Frost I wish I had the courage to take the road less travelled by. I wish I...
