    Grateful ,

    I just wanna be grateful for all I have now . When it's still with me . Tho it's not enough - at least I have something to call 'MINE' . So it's okay to have something that's not precious in other's eyes. Because it's not the price , the size matters. It's how much you...

    I have God, Jesus, and my angel.

    I have everything because I have them. I do not need a family or home or friends like others have, because they are my family, my home, and my friends.

    Don't Need Much

    Not that long ago, all of my worldly possessions fit in a bag and a purse.  I learned real quick how little material things actually matter. And now that I'm in a better situation, I am grateful for every little thing.  From a place to store my stuff to my umbrella to a...

    Some people here dwell on scars,

    and wounds, and pasts, and all that DRAMA. I only focus on the good things because I have to be a good sight to see and shoulder to lean on rather than some messed up drama queen or drama king who likes dwelling on bitter pasts, slitting wrists, and bawling over things that I...
