    for me to change... to walk a different path in life... you know "renewing thyself". Sigh, it's hard, it really is. The temptations, the urge of going back. At times i feel like giving up this fight... trust me this constant battle with all these disappointments, its so...

    Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it.
