    I think of my self as a never ending project.

    Perfection is impossible but I can come as close as I can to my ideal self. I want to be the best guy I can be and I refuse to give up or let myself go. There is always good for improvement in any part of life and I'm always ready for change.

    I guess I am still a sprout

    after all. I thought that i'm mature enough to face everything but I guess I was wrong. After that soul searching I see things that I couldn't see before. I'm just a sap starting to grow nurturing from this world. Slowly going with the flow of the nature.

    3 solutions to every problem: accept it,

    change it, leave it. If you can't accept it, change it. If you can't change it, leave it.

    Ever since I can remember,

    I have always enjoyed reading books in my free time. This hobby of mine has stayed with me through childhood until now as a young adult getting ready for the real world. One of my favorite genre of books to read is self-help in my free time. Some of my favorite self-help authors...

    You know all the stupid stuff

    that gets you down? Don't let it. You are much better than that so started realising it now. Ignore and forget the cr*p. And just learn to enjoy every moment, like every moment in the present is simply the best. You can make it if you really want to.

    How much of ourselves

    and our happiness do we give up to make a spouse happy? You say those vows "for better or for worse", but those vows do not even begin to touch on the many complications that can come up in a marriage. So the question of the day is, if making your spouse happy means making...

    From now on, if you're just someone

    When I am getting healthy

    and losing weight, some people get nasty or insecure. My husband gets very insecure. I want to be around when my 2 year old gets older. This is for me.

    When I was younger I used to compare myself to

    It's been almost 2 weeks

    I often find that younger people become obsessed

    or prove their "maturity" by believing and acting as if they know everything. Never stop educating yourself and learning from others. An intelligent person will know that he/she can never learn everything. Be grateful for the lessons you learn and the stories you hear around you...
