    She Loves Me

    Today is my birthday. I suppose I'll get a little bit of recognition for it but I really do like to keep things simple. Coming up, it was never a tradition in our family to celebrate birthdays with too much enthusiasm. Though I don't think the lack of fanfare was because of a...

    Sometimes you do not realize the weight of

    something you have been carrying until you feel the weight of its release.

    Life

    I have made a lot of mistakes in my life. However, I would not take back any of them. These mistakes are what create our personality. They give us backbone, and wisdom. The older I get the more I realize that I am perfect the way I am. I do not need to please anyone or allow...

    I no longer believe in the idea of soul mates,

    or love at first sight. But I am beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you are lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed...

    I do believe this. I've had failed relationships

    and I've learnt a great deal from them. I think you have to experience the bad to appreciate the good. You learn to choose your battles rather than wading in to a full scale War. You appreciate the small things and value them. You can understand other peoples pain because you...

    Listening To Iris.

    I break down. I want to scream. I want to bleed. I want to cry. I would rather have pain than have to bear this deafening silence. My life is flying away before me and yet I am going nowhere. That moment when I realize that this is all for nothing. School. Relationships...

    It Is What We Think About Our Experiences That Make Us Who We Are!

    The map is not the territory. We can think and feel any way we choose about an experience, that in it self is what shapes us. If you are unhappy with where you presently are in life start seeing it differently and changes begin to happen almost effortlessly. Don't allow people...

    Of course. How you endure

    and cope with any given situation defines how you look at life from then on. What's amazing is the amount of stuff you survive!!!

    Life is full of ups and downs.

    Victories and challenges. I haven't always made the best decisions in life however it's all of what I've been through that makes me who I am today. It's also life's decisions that have brought the people in my life across my path. I choose to not focus on the past but to learn...

    How You Respond

    Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself.Walter...

    All Of Our Life Experiences Form Us!

    Form the time we are born until the time we die. All of the things we experience make us whom we are. Only you can change yourself for the better or worse from those experiences no matter how bad or great the experience was! Only you! Ask Nelson Mandela!!!

    I believe my past has made me the person I am

    today. A lot of bad things have happened. And those things have made me a stringer person and it's made me wiser. Those experiences have changed my outlook on the world and without them I wouldn't be the strong resilient person I am today.

    Well, that's true. I admire people who are not being afraid to just be themselves. I think that just be yourself was the best than be like other girls.
