    How determine are you?

    I don't get it by starring. I don't get it by wishing. I don't get it by drooling. I don't get it by hoping . And it DOESN'T come easy. I get it by getting off my ***, working for it every second of every day for the rest of my life. If you want it get off your *** and do...

    Time To Thicken My Resolve

    Over the last several months I have had this overwhelming feeling of impatience and restlessness. Stuck and bound by circumstances not of my control.  It feels like a never ending game of waiting. Waiting for things to settle with my divorce, waiting for things to settle...

    I am not sure why. I always have been

    that way. Driven, By what? for what? well that i am not sure of. Most likely because i know no different. Coming from blue collar family maybe? Expecting the worse from situations so when things go good it is like hitting the lottery. Being "let down" doesn't exist very often to...

    Yeah. Most of the time anyway. Most days I go for what I want. But there are times when I just cave in and let things get the best of me. But I'm ok in the end, cause I'm very determined.

    I Am Determined To Be Who I Want To Be.

    Twice Upon A Time

    Once upon a time, you couldn't stop me! Nothing could deter me from hitting the mark - reaching my goals and capturing my dreams. Somewhere along the way I lost my drive and my confidence. I let other people's opinions decide how far I could go. I let what females thought OR didn...

    It's Time To Make This City Mine

    This is outright ridiculous sulking alone in sadness as it pushes me question if I even belong in this city - as it pushes me to recurring thoughts of suicide. I won't let this one mistake of doing my friends wrong drive me away from this city. The circle of friends I separated...

    I Do What I Want

    If I want to get something done, I do it and I do not let anything stop me from getting what I want. For example, I wanted to quit smoking, and I refused to buy any pack of cigarettes for any reason no matter how much I craved for one. Maybe that's moreso self-control than it is...
