    To all teenagers such

    as myself: Our generation loves to complain about inexistent struggles. We direct so much of our attention to things like popularity, social status and wealth that we are slowly forgetting the values that meant the most to us. We grew stronger yet we became arrogant; we...

    Well here I am, back again

    and updating this topic. I have had a couple of weeks to give more thought to my life - am I happy with it at the moment?...... No! I feel restricted. My marriage is not what I wanted it to be, or what I was led to believe it would be. I am struggling financially as my business...

    Some Day

    It took me all this time to realise that I wasn't as content with my life as I thought I was. I've been living in a rut for so long, doing all the things expected of me -  being the good wife, mother, employee, daughter, sister and friend and in doing so lost a bit of...

    Today Is The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life.....

    Cliché? Yes, but true. I've spent so long dwelling in the past and worrying about the future that I forget to live in the here and now and I'm sure many of you who want more from life and that are reading this can say the same is true for them. I've spent most of my life hating...

    Who Says I Want To Go Back Home?

    I hate the city I grew up in, (Lets call it T) and I always have. I spent the first 18 years of my life here, and I always had the overwhelming feeling of being trapped here. I have never wanted anything more than to just get out! Now, T is home to what is apparently a great...

    in my life - It wasn't! I have to admit that I am a bit of a free thinker - what I believe about life, people and how we are meant to live does not always fit into a ready made box. Everyone makes mistakes! That is a simple fact of life and there are no exceptions. Sometimes...

    I Think You Should Speak Now

    I think the words you stop yourself from saying are the ones that haunt you the longest. So say it to them. Or say it to yourself in the mirror, say it in a letter you’ll never send or a book millions might read someday. I think you deserve to look back on your life without a...

    The Way You Think Of Things

    I think that a giant part of "getting" more from life has to do with changing your perspective of how you view your current life, and how much you appreciate the things, even little ones, that happen in your life. I've had evenings where I go out, laugh, have good food...

    I Want More -in- Life, Not From Life

    I do want more in life. I want better health, good friends, learn something new everyday. But the only way I'm going to get it is by how much I put into my life. Life doesn't owe me anything.

    Can't ignore this constant feeling

    that there's more to life than what we've been presented. When I say that I don't mean gods or an afterlife. I simply mean, this society feels like a prison. From an early age my parents told me to strive for more at all times. To let my reach exceed my grasp. Then, as the...

    I won't say that I want more from life because it's not life's fault that I don't have more. It's mine. I want to know more, so that I can teach my children. I want to do more, so that I can at least have an idea what life had to offer. I just all around expect more from myself...
