    I fought my way to this time and placeBlood and tears and painA challenge every dayTo learn to move with and within this battered bodyTo find pride in my scarsAnd bruisesAnd woundsA battle waged for freedomThat I wonNo victory ever could be sweeter

    Good Morning!

    Life's good so far. My only worried aren't so big, I'll get there eventually. As my habibi says, "Take it day by day." Eventually I'll accomplish all those things I want to do. In the mean time, I'll just focus I the now. I shouldn't be too worried about my life, I'm alive...

    I'm Glad Those Pills Didn't Work...

    I used to be suicidal. But now I'm a mom, and I can't imagine my life any different than it is right now. Granted, it could be a little bit better, but I'm thankful for what I have, especially my son!

    This is my day of relaxation

    after my road trip just to take everything all in. My friends ask what I did, but they don't understand how much I've learned. How much more about life I've realized. As far as making new realizations go, I'd like to compare my road trip to an acid trip or maybe mushrooms. My...

    Death

    Each one of us is a Universe.  Driving to work today in the dark, white lines visible as they come rushing toward me and disappear under the car.  Dark shadow of my hand on the dark shadow of the wheel, moving back an forth with the rhytum of the road.  Shadows and light, the...

    I'm so happy and thankfull

    for being alive. I'm so happy that I can hear music and see colors and beautiful peoples and landscapes. And I'm so thankful that I have really good friends and family, who are so suportive.

    I like to take a second

    and just breathe. God it feels good to just let the head fall back, look up at the sky, and just inhale life. I don't have to know if there's a reason why I'm here, what my purpose is, what's the meaning of life, or who made the universe. I just have to breathe in and be...

    I didn't always enjoy life.

    There was a time when just being alive hurt so much, it seemed pointless to stay that way. But I could see the way my suicide would break apart my family, that nothing would be the same for them again, and I couldn't do that to them. So I put it off, until I didn't want to kill...

    I've died a few times,

    but I woke up. Closing your eyes thinking it's the end really challenges your views of religion.

    At This Moment, I Am Happy to Be Alive..

     I am not usually this happy. About three hours ago, I was on here, feeling alone and depressed. I am 14, and my moods are never average. They are either very high, or very low. It's a bit hard sometimes. I am happy for a reason that would probably sound very simple...

    Happy Days

    I met this lovely person who seems to enjoy just spending time with me. I realized I don't have to fill the empty space in conversation just for the sake moving my lips. I found someone that can kiss my soul just by being near. It is nice having a friend and a lover at the same...

    Those 8 feelings constantly pooling us in different directions, causing suffering. They are also known as eight worldly dharmas, or 8 worldly concerns.  Getting what you want, and avoiding getting what you do not want. Wanting (instant) happiness, and not wanting unhappiness...

    Being Grateful

    Isn't it funny, in a sad sort of way, how often we get so mired down in every day depressions like bills, job, responsibilities and such until we forget just how lucky we are to be alive? It can take something as simple as anaphylatic shock, a sever car wreck or as in my...
