    My Loved Ones

    Although I'm resistant to changing myself for others, I wouldn't have a problem changing for the better for the ones I call family, my loved ones.

    My Influence

    I consider myself a positive influence already.  I am raising my six year old sister, lead lots of church activities, and have high moral standards, as well as being an "over-acheiver."  I am very pleased with the influence I have on others.

    I Hope I Am..

    I am calm by nature, and so many people are just overly hasty. So I try to just calm them down a bit by talking to them or just showing them that it's no problem if it takes them 2 minutes longer to finish something. I avoid unnecessary fights myself, and try to make people stop...

    It Takes The Same Energy To Be Positive Or Negative

    I've been on both sides of this fence. Being negative and seeing a half empty glass landed me nowhere. A half full glass and a pocket full of dreams that to some seemed outrageous took me to places around the globe and back.I know as I sit here right now how hard it is to turn it...

    Love

    There is too much hate and anger in this world.  We are loved.  God loves us so much that through all of our days, as many times as we stray and disobey, He never walks away. Because He loves us, because He sent His son for us, because Christ taught us how to love...
