    Still Figuring Out

    As I sit here in my room locked away from the crowd. I feel tied down. I am locked in my room as I wait for a change a turning point in my life. I miss those lovely walks along the crowd those smiles I received and gave those strangers. I am bewildered by horns of vehicles on...

    So Here'S My First Shot At It...

    I've having trouble finding what my life's going to be about, thinking a while i came up with this (it's just a first idea, so it may be heavily flawed). I've filtered hm... 3 things i want from life: 1.- Economic stability (that's for more than survival, i'd like free time too...

    If Anyone Has Figured It Out...

    I believe that the entire world could fit into this group. Since the beginning of time, people have been trying to figure out life and it's meaning. Hey, that's where religion came from. I believe that we'll never stop learning about ourselves and life in general. In a way, I'm...

    Life has a funny way of spinning us around,

    attempting to point us in the direction we should go and then giving us roads to choose.... to either go back to where we started, forge forward to a new adventure, or remain idle taking the familiar in while attempting to notice the change taking place around us. It is...

    It's A Process

    I wonder if there's anyone who really feels they have life "figured out" at least for themselves, and knows exactly "who they are."  I feel as though I'm constantly learning new things about myself and life everyday, and it's things that I think I...

    Just Merely Survival

    Can't believe how thing everyday went to be so common, I live in an ordinary life which is the only goal is just a merely survival. Live an ordinary and predicted life is so boring. Same things happen day by day. Nothing to be expected to happen.

    “I can teach anybody how to get what they

    want out of life. The problem is that I can’t find anybody who can tell me what they want.” – Mark Twain But random inspirational quotes sure help with that!

    Neverending Task

    I don't believe we ever stop "figuring life out". As we grow, our brains change and we learn different things, which then prompt us to behave differently, and the process goes on and on until we return to the place from which we came.

    Misnomer

    We call it a broken heart- that anguish, that searing pain, when someone leaves. If they die, eventually (one hopes) there is acceptance. They have gone to a better place; they are at peace, one day I will be reunited with them. These phrases help us cope; they are comforting...
