    I think I found my actual purpose in life.

    Growing up I was always "Different" I never ever fit in with the general public ever, I always had this certain type of personality that made me stand out no matter where I went. I've had people tell me in the past that I am different, that I'm an individual, I don't let any of...

    I tried to die once but I kept going

    "I think the purpose of life is to be useful,

    to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate. It is, after all, to matter: to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." I love this quote and I live it; I am walking the narrow path and realizing what God's purpose for me IS...

    to love. to laugh. to spread peace

    and joy. to make you laugh. to share. to learn. to dance. to paint. to help my fellow man, every chance I get. to smile.... to tell all of you that the secret of life is not really a secret. energy reflects itself. what you put out is what you get back. simple metaphysics.
