    My Wrinkles Tell My Story

    Today I uploaded my movie unto the film festival's dropbox, that was tiring but ya know I'm excited for things to come. Today I met up with Emma, she made me slutty brownies. We talked for a while and a while longer, there were highs and lows in that conversation. I'm happy with...

    Well....

    I was born in South Yorkshire and lived there for many years. As my work took me south I met and married a girl from Hertfordshire and settled there for quite a few years. We've since split and I'm still south (but different area) but from time to time do get the opportunity to...

    The first way I have been trying to improve my

    life is to cut back on my consumption of alcohol. It hasn't been easy and I've found myself getting irritated really easy at times for no reason. But I know it's something I need to do.

    I am always looking to improve,

    I guess I have the inability to just sit still and enjoy life. I guess I can't quite feel satisfied at times but I use it to my advantage and constantly improve. I suppose it works for me in allot of ways but I am insecure at times, people could give me compliments all day long...

    Life is lost... Life is gained.

    .. Life is a given... Life is an option... Living is a choice ...not a promise... So choose to exist... Or to live!

    I Am Trying to Accept My Life ...

    I am trying to accept my life with limited mobility.  I desire to improve my abilities rather than concentrate on my limits, but lately I seem to remain focused on what I can't do rather than what I can do.

    Raising Self-esteem

    I was raised to believe that I am worthless and unlovable, and that my needs aren't worth meeting. As a child, almost every day I would come home crying after school due to relentless bullying from peers, and mistreatment by teachers. Things weren't much better at home. I lived...

    The only thing at matters in life is the climb.

    People will come and go. Money is just a tool. Love can be found, lost, and found again. But the climb to better yourself is forever. The moment you stop climbing is when the small fleeting things take you over. When the best you can do for fun is drink, eat and have sex. That's...
