    That's Life In A Nut Shell

    It can be sickening or challenging..fun or routine. Point is, life never stops when you're in it, to win it.  That's what coping is sometimes.We've all wanted to just lay down & give up..rest. Take a long break & maybe someone will do a nice rescue?   Don't count...

    I have holes in my soul

    but life fixes it for me one by one. People make holes in your soul but life is trying to make you see why that hole is there for a start, then you swallow the truth until you gain new insights from it. The hole might not be there anymore but what's left is a scar. I've had...

    I Keep On Keepin' On

    Hey let's face it, life can be tough as anything some days. I get knocked down, sometimes I fall, other times I feel like life is pushing my face in the dirt, but I get up every morning and do it all again and would not miss a day of this for anything!

    Yeah Yeah Yeah

    Whenever I fall down I manage to pick myself up no matter how hard it is, no matte how much it hurts, no matter how much I just want to lie there and die I make myself get up and get on with things. Hopefully this is the last time I will have to do this.
