    Have you ever had that feeling

    when you're outside with the cold wind blowing at you and looking out at a distance, and you just feel so free. You feel like nothing can harm you and can see the world clearly. You start to picture the great big world out there just waiting for you to come and explore it

    I'm a believer in the butterfly effect.

    So I believe life is a spiral of an infinite amount of paths and our choices will decide how we approach them and whether or not we should make the most of those paths. it's up to you and you only.

    This adventure sometimes really sucks.

    But we gotta keep walking in the path we think is best. Even if sometimes it means letting go of someone. They have a path as well. Everyone has their own, and they are bound to meet again... this earth vet big.
