    Make Every Moment Count

    I pledge today to make every moment count. To do the best for myself and others and not waste time on regrets, self-doubt, or self-loathing. I believe that this is the only chance I will have to live my life, and to waste that chance through any act of "poor me" hesitation is...

    That's what I used to do when I heard that statement. I laughed because I wasn't buying into that crap. Nowadays, I have a completely different take on things. It seems like just yesterday my dad was being a jerk to everyone at a family function, but not enough to ruin it...

    Life Is Short

    I believe life is short and you should make the most of it. You only get one life, one chance to live, so don't take anything for granted and do all you can with the life that you have. Life is what you make of it, and make the most that you can of it. Life is shorter than...

    Choices

    We are faced with so many choices in our lives and in all honesty we don't always make the wisest choices while we're young, or sometimes even when we're older. What do we do with the wrong choices? We can learn and grow from them or we can let them suffocate us. I am aware...

    I'm starting to think that if you have any kind of feeling at all, life is hard. The more you feel, the harder it is. But also the harder you feel, the better life can be.
