    Here's To The Future, I'll Drink To That...

    Holding onto the past is never all it's cracked up to be...It's what makes that change, that sucks the life out of you without you realising it.  Holding on to past thoughts and expecting them to differ from what you once knew to be true.  Like banging your head against a wall...

    Where did I reach? How did I let those shadows

    get me down.. They were my own.. Weaknesses that didn't meet their strengths in time.. Emotions swelled up inside.. Dreams locked up deep below.. What am I waiting to let it all go, to let life flow? Am on the edge now, come and push me down.. I desperately need something new...

    My Past Experiences Have Made Me Who I Am Today....

    I do my best to not blame others or myself for the past. I look at it now as lessons and the gaining of wisdom, that those experiences allowed me to go thru. Sure, I do the same things time and again. But if I allow someone else to use me, who;s fault is it really/ Mine, not...

    I really wish I could let go of the past.

    Not everything just one thing. It might show that I am strong because I overcome it but I can't live with it. I can't have it entering my mind everyday. It's holding me back from enjoying each day. I just want it to go away :(

    Let go of the past why?

    Guys are always going to flirt and cheat with somebody. That's why I date two guys at 1 time. If he leave me I always got the other one. Simple as that

    The present is called the present,

    because God gave it to us. Everyday is a gift, so make the most of it.
