    Floating

    I awoke this morning and felt the absence of my usual sense of wonder. I missed it.   In fact, I felt like crying.   Well, I don’t have anything against crying… but … the day was beautiful… did I really want to fill it with my tears?   And where were these tears coming...

    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.

    When you're one of those people

    who have been through a lot to the point where you weren't sure you'd make it, I've always been the one to make others happy even if I got nothing in return because I never wanted anyone to hurt the way I did, but now I'm dedicated to making myself happy and building myself back...

    On My Road to Victory

    For the past 7 years, my life had been mostly a struggle, more so psychologically, as I had acquired a lot of fears which at the time I could not understand, let alone deal with. I was shy, anxious in just about any social situation, and eventually got depressed. I realise now...

    Did you ever lose friends

    when they found out you wanted to go back to school? Like, they don't want you to better yourself? I have a Master's and was looking into professional schools and doctoral programs.

    From now on, if you're just someone

    who sits around complaining WITHOUT TRYING TO FIX ANYTHING YOURSELF at all, I won't associate with you. I need to cut out some negativity in my life and try to move forward and I can't sit back holding your hands. We can move forward together or I can move forward alone. I...

    Through failure, we learn how it is possible to

    succeed. Through continual failure, we obtain the endurance we need to overcome the trials that await before us. Through success earned with failure, we gain the motivation we need to keep pressing onwards, no matter the enemy. This is how I see failure. While it can be...

    Today was a really great day.

    I'm feeling phenomenal and I'm very appreciative of this moment. I have been super emotional lately, but today I felt grounded and strong. I have so much to work on, but I'm thankful for my overall progress.

    I burned my last cigarette

    before midnight. Today is now the 4th of July, marking my independence from drugs. One day at a time. I will recover and grow from the mistakes I made. Today is a new day.

    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...

    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.

    For the longest time,

    I thought I was at a stalemate with myself. No vehicle, no job, no home. I've achieved nothing since high school, how pitiful. I recently chronicled the abuse I suffered from the second semester grade 8 to the first semester of college, and with it chronicled the effects my...

    It's been almost 2 weeks

    since I've smoked a cigarette. I didn't think I would be able to do it at first, especially without the use of nicotine patches or gum, but it's honestly very easy now. Week 3 here I come!!

    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...

    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.
