    It Stings Like A Bee But I Am Floating Like A Butterfly

    To The Members Of This Group.

    I LOVE YOU ALL...THE ONLY ONE WHO STANDS IN YOUR WAY IS THE ONE YOU ALLOW TO DO SO. RIOT. RAGE. REEK HAVOC. IF YOU CAN'T FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT THEN FIGHT FOR FIGHTINGS SAKE. THE ONLY FIGHT YOU EVER LOSE IS THE ONE YOU REFUSE TO FIGHT. IF YOU GO DOWN...GO DOWN SWINGING.

    This year has barely begun

    and I've had a mix of feeling down, feeling up, feeling lost and feeling like "seriously this is messed up." No, it hasn't been all bad, but the tone has clearly been set that I have three choices - 1) I can roll with the punches and continue to survive - I've been doing this...

    The Fighter

    Life is tough, but I'm tougher. I'm gonna go the full 9 rounds, and when this fight called life is over, I'll be the victor.

    There was a point where I actually contemplated

    suicide and dying. I was exhausted and didn't know what else I wanted to do with my life as I had explored all that I had wanted to explore (and even some things I didn't want to explore) to my heart's content and found it all to be kind of meaningless. It was around the time...
