    Just because you fail doesn’t mean you’ll

    never succeed. Just because you make mistakes doesn’t mean you’ll never get it right. Just because you’re lost doesn’t mean you’ll never be found. Just because you’re confused doesn’t mean you’ll never figure it out. Just because you’re vulnerable doesn’t...

    I just went through all of my experiences

    and I'm proud to say that I got rid of most of the things that I finally stopped struggling with. I've stopped cutting, I'm not depressed anymore, I don't feel like suicide, I'm not as completely broken and a mess as I was. I feel a lot better about myself as well. No longer...

    Don’t follow the trends.

    Set the trends. Don’t squeeze yourself into other people’s boxes. Embrace the open air. Don’t hide who you are. Show the world. Don’t hate who you are. Embrace it. Don’t change who you are. Change how other people see you. Don’t let the world define you. Define the...

    Others see problems. I see potential solutions.

    Others see setbacks. I see challenges. Others see a wall. I see a million ways around it. Others see a dead end. I see a yellow brick road that just hasn’t been built yet. Others see chaos. I see patterns. Others see destruction. I see new beginnings. Others see flaws. I see...

    Struggle comes before success. Conflict comes before resolution. Incompleteness comes before completeness. Night comes before day. Darkness comes before light. Rain comes before a rainbow. Winter comes before spring. Questioning comes before finding answers. Confusion comes...

    Don’t complain about what’s wrong in the

    world. Fix it. Don’t wait around for someone else. Do it yourself. Don’t take. Give. Don’t let your self-interests blind you to the needs of the world. Put others first. Don’t let anything get in the way. Work around it. Don’t let anything hold you back. Push past it...

    Perspective

    I've been trying to write all day and realized there's nothing much to write about anymore. Since I've been doing the work, my perspective is changing so much. As my mother told me it might. I can't play the victim anymore because I'm figuring out the reality of things, of life...

    Don’t let the day get in the way of your

    dreams. Hold onto them. Don’t let the road tell you which way to go. Pave your own road. Don’t let the mountains block out the sun. Climb up to the top of them. Don’t let the valleys scare you. Build bridges to the other side. Don’t stop walking when you reach the ocean...

    You told me I couldn’t walk.

    Watch me run. You told me I couldn’t jump. Watch me fly. You told me I couldn’t swim. Watch me dive. You told me I couldn’t fight. Watch me conquer. You told me I couldn’t see. Watch me believe. You told me I couldn’t think. Watch me understand. You told me I couldn...

    Since I started writing music I've started

    looking at life in a whole new perspective. I've started to see beauty, yet disgust, in the world. The Earth is a beautifully disgusting place that I no one should have to live in, but should feel great-full to be leaving in it.

    Breathe In, Breathe Out

    The dark days are behind me now. Struggles will still come and my strength will be tested. No longer is can't a part of my vocabulary. I'm choosing to focus on what is good in my life and make it even better. Surrounding myself with people and things that make me happy, make me...

    The sun heals what the wind can’t.

    The day heals what the night can’t. The fire heals what the snow can’t. The wind heals what the sun can’t. The night heals what the day can’t. The snow heals what the fire can’t.

    Of My "self"

    She was only 30 years old. That's almost two decades younger than I. We met 14 years ago. She was 16 and pregnant (I think there's a TV show now with that title), her soon to be mother-in-law had brought her over to my house for medical advice. The young woman (hah! let's be...

    Whenever I want something I can't have,

    I try to make it happen for someone else. When something’s going wrong for me, I try to help someone else in that situation. When I’m at my worst, I try to make someone else happy.
