    Ok Soo.Something's just clicked tonight,

    I have so much I want to do and achieve and to do that and to keep focused I thought the best idea were to cut everyone off that were nothing but bad influences. I'm now currently sat watching tv (which isn't something I'd normally do) I'm normally out on it or at the gym or...

    A Few Times a Week

    ~ I try to think positive.... Try not to think bout the heartache I am going thru... Try not to remember 'what was'...  Try to move on even though I will never get the truth on why we can never be together.

    Trying Hard

    It's hard work but you've just gotta keep going, and accepting that you're going to have down days too helps. No one can be up all the time but mind you I have a friend that does a pretty good job of it. So I take a leaf out of her book and try to put a bit of positivity into...

    A Promise To Myself

    I am making a promise to myself to think more positive. Its hard for me to look at the good in any type of situation, because I have always looked at the negative so that in the end it wouldnt surprise me when I got hurt. I need to change though, living life focusing on the...

    I'm trying, I really am.

    But reality's just so much more deeper than my dreams. I try to think positive but when I do, reality hits me and overpowers my dreams and I fail and fall into negativity again. The cycle is ongoing..forever. Nothing seems right anymore.

    I've got a lot at hand right now.

    .....seems like nothing is actually working as planned, sometimes I just want to lose it and just forget it all, but then I try to take a pause and think...of how better I am than some out there and How (positive thinking) is the only way out. 🙏

    In A Strange Way

    When I stop believing that everything is about me, a lot less affects me and I become a more positive person. Because a lot of the things that happen to you, have nothing to do with you. I saw a quote somewhere that went we have no right to ask: "why did this happen to me?" when...
