    Why Can't I Be Happy

    Ever since this girl first walked into our

    school for the first time, I couldn't take my eyes off her, and I know I probably wasn't the only one gazing at her beauty. Through my mind I was thinking "you know what, I'm gonna try to talk to her, I need to man up, I need to know how to talk to a girl and here's my first...

    differently. I am a married woman, but have been very happy for the last 24 year now. I guess it was ever since we had to sell our new townhouse and then move to a new city. I really hate living here. It so difficult to meet new people and make new friends. And forget about...

    How would I live without her?

    By Declaring We Are Weak, We Become Weak, We Do Not Become Better.

    Whatever you dream and think of, you create. If it is hell, you die and see hell. If it is evil and Satan, you get a Satan. If ghosts, you get ghosts. Whatever you think, that you become. If you have to think, think good thoughts, great thoughts. This taking for granted that you...
