    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...

    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!!!

    But more so, I believe it's what we make of our

    experiences that make us who we are.

    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...

    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...

    Sometimes you do not realize the weight of

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

    When I was a little boy I was scared of the

    back room at my grandmothers house. It was dark,cold, and filled with monsters. One day she made me a head to toe Frankenstein costume out of recycled paper bags. Suddenly I was not scared to be in the back room. I learned that the world is a scary place filled with monsters...

    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...

    All Of Our Life Experiences Form Us!

    From 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!!!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Letting Go Of The Past

    It's not an easy task getting rid of your past as you sift through boxes of memorabilia, draws full of your kids toys, cupboards full of clothes/teddies, looking through photographs of better times. One thing you must do is be ruthless and unemotional. That's where I let myself...

    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...

    I am a pretty cynical person,

    because of my experiences. But I still am hopeful and happy within my life. I just don't expect much from others.

    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.
