    Life isn't a bad thing.

    It isn't full of darkness. Sometimes you have to get through the dark to find the switch that turns on the light. You'll stumble and fall over things because you can't see your way. You're blind to where you are walking. You might think its easier to give up and just sit it in...

    One Should Never Forget

    I believe that to tell someone to forget about the past is really bad advice. To forget only leads to repeating failed judgements. We shouldn't dwell on the past or live in the past, but we should reflect on it so that past mistakes are not repeated. Even better, be observant...

    Growing up is hard enough,

    but growing up the past few years without my father, has shown me that when life challenges you, that you can't give up.

    You are exactly where you’re supposed to be

    at this very moment. Even if things aren’t the way you want them to be. Even if there’s more to do or undo. Even if you feel like you need to start over from scratch. Every experience and step is necessary. :)

    I've always thought that life is a test,

    and certain situations or hard times that happen test your character and make you who you are. It's weird but I feel like the more hard times you have the happier you become in yourself for getting through them
