    I Choose To

    I cannot look back and dwell on all of it because every time I do it sets me back. I can't think about tomorrow because if it doesn't get here then I wasted today's time on something that was never guaranteed to begin with. To do either seems like the ultimate waste of time to me...

    The Power Of Now

    One of the most life changing books that my being has read has got to be hands down The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. Fascinating book. I highly recommend it. It teaches us the importance of remaining in our present moments. We may be having fun and then think about having to go...

    I'm sitting down here looking at the person

    ahead of me, he sat with the a bong in his hand. The feeling of living in the moment is inevitable. Therefore this moment is all that I care of, my best friend with me, besides me always. I believe that in this moment I will be in a situation lighting away "stuff" in the air. I...

    All We Have is Today What has happened in the

    past, is over. We can't go back, all we can do is learn from it. Some people are trapped, stuck and have let the past define themselves. We don't know what is going to happen in the future...best laid plans are oft in vain. All we can do is learn from our past and move...
