    Big Rocks

    I didn't write this.  But I share it because I believe I learned from it.  Now I look to deal first with the big rocks in my life, and try not to sweat the small stuff. Big Rocks --------- One day an expert in time management was speaking to a group of business...

    Learning A Valuable Lesson

    When things go wrong, people love to say that it doesn't matter because at least you've learned a valuable lesson in life. To be honest there are many lessons about human nature that I wish I had never learned. Am I the only one to feel that way? Are all lessons good ones? I don...

    Just Because

    I learned that just because something is enjoyable and fun, doesn't mean it's the best thing for you. I always used to think that experimenting with drugs wouldn't have any negative effects on me but i was wrong and learned my lesson.

    We were (mom and I), in the kitchen,

    talking. I saw her all the dishes and take care of all the dirt we've scattered all across the house. Then I decided to live alone. I won't have to put up with another person, compromise things, be abused, won't have to answer anyone, can live freely. And I love freedom!

    Today I chased a guy trying to steal my bike.

    I won the war and my bike is back in my safe hands. I am so lucky I was in the right place at the right time. However, I only had "get my bike back" on my brain. If he was armed in any way, I don't think I would have seen it coming. Sure I love my bike, but I love myself even...

    Major Lesson Learned

    What I have learned from my whole life in general, but mainly the last 7 years dealing with a mental illness called schizophrenia, is that God is faithful and his compassion never ends. We may get upset and say mean cruel things to him because of the suffering, yet his love never...

    When you get to know someone,

    all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That is why you cant fall in love with beauty or looks. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it...
