    I Want To Be Selfish For Once

    Its funny how something tiny can make a big difference. I recently unwrapped one of my favorite candy treat's and the wrapper said: "Keep the promises you make to yourself" I guess what struck me the most after reading that was that I couldn't think of the last time I made a...

    I've been through a lot in my life

    and I'm only 15 years old. I'm stronger because of that. Others don't understand what I've been through and instead just laugh. I don't care if someone laughs at me. I know what I've gone through and I don't care if someone doesn't believe me.

    I am determined to give whatever I decide to

    tackle in life. I rather except the fact of not succeeding the first time around instead of not trying at all!
