    Spoilers

    I don't care about spoilers. I don't care that I knew Snape dies in the end, or that Harry dies, but he comes back to life, or that Voldypoo dies. It doesn't matter that they died, it only matters why. Why did they die, what led up to their deaths, the decisions they made, the...

    About Us Communicating

    I'm beginning to understand. When we've had our talks, I've been caught up in my own interpretation of what's going on or what the discussion is leading to, and been hearing different things from what you really have said. Not always, but sometimes. So I think it would help me...

    "Shoes" - Poem

    I sit here, hands entangled, twisting and turning through strands of onyx clenching as if I’m waiting for release. Heavy sighs pouring out of my pouting bottom lip, bittten, beaten, bruised… My lack of fingernails filling with skin, teeth grinding like my mother, my tongue...

    I Would't Change My Journey

    I am not one for regret, for everything that I have experienced has been one of choice - and good or bad, I made that choice, and therefore have no regrets.I believe my journey is one filled with life lessons, those that I've had, and those  yet to come.  Although...

    A Difference

    The final destination in this life is death of our bodies. Everyone's destination is the same. It's the journey that makes the difference. Mine will be vastly different than yours. I am not afraid of pain and scars that come with my journey anymore. I used to be. I was shy, and...

    Live Life As There Is No Second Chance

    As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You'll have your heart broken and you'll break others' hearts. You'll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you'll cry because time is flying...

    The Time Is Now

    Every great philosophical mind throughout history has pointed out the importance of one undeniable metaphor—life is a journey. Some see this journey as a quest for knowledge, others as a road to self-discovery. I see it as a circle, where all our experiences affect the next...

    The paradox of our time in history is

    This Is A Secret

    Believing that life "is about the journey, not the destination" is THE secret to a happy life. I am not always waiting for something to happen; it just happens. Most of the time, it happens by MY choice and sometimes I "go with the flow" and observe it and see how it "fits" in my...

    At The End Of The Road

    In the end 99% of us end up the same place; either buried in the ground or incinerated and entombed elsewhere.  What sets us apart is how we get there.  Life is a collection of experiences, it's about what we do and who we are because we're all going the same place.

    Life is a journey to find your own life paths. You can't walk in someone else life paths. They can't walk your paths either. Of course is not easy to walk your paths. We all have difficult life paths.   Destination is like you are driving from point A to point B. You can see...
