    I'm doing just that. I decided ten years ago to

    live my life as if each day was my last day. I am checking one adventure off of my bucket list next week, skydiving.

    Mortal combat What are these feelings?

    From where do they come? It's like a million little things, have piled into one. They build up together, in the dark parts of my mind. And gather their fury, in the parts I am blind. How long has it been? Have I not taken care? My ego tells me lies, it keeps me unaware. It...

    I am different to a lot of people I know,

    because I don't want to just vegetate and survive - go to work, go home, eat, sleep etc - and I'm not interested in status symbols, marriage, children or settling down. I want to live my life like a beautiful adventure or like a work of art. I want to travel, I want to make...

    A few months back I decided to drastically change my life. After my 7 year relationship ended and a friend of mine committed suicide - I made the decision to STOP waiting for real life to begin and pursue my dream. So, I left my corporate marketing job in Paris, packed my bags...

    I realized **** feelings,

    **** friends, **** enemies , **** whatever brings you down. Just be you and have fun man. I started taking risks in my life , stopped being shy and scared and just went for it. Even though my life isn't complete or even close to what I want I'm slowly beginning to be happy.

    Life is short! Break the rules!

    Forgive quickly! Kiss slowly! Love truly, laugh uncontrollably & never regret anything that made you smile.

    Hidden beneath My life

    once was fun, or at least that's what I thought…… The truth is, in a tangled web was I caught. Half truths and lies, ingrained in my brain. That led me to believe, I was winning this game. But as I look back, I have a theory. On why I believe, that life became so dreary. I...

    As many of you already know,

    I have lost both my mother and my best friend to cancer. The thing about cancer, specially in the final stages, is that you know the end is coming, and it leaves you time, sometimes too much of it, to reflect on your life and what really matters. What struck me the most is...

    I just came across a book recently,

    an amazing book I got for about fifty cents somewhere, but it is priceless. And I think it could impact your lives, as well, in a positive enlightened way. It's called Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson, M.D. It has four characters in it, two mice called Sniff and...

    There's a difference between surviving

    and living. I was the type of girl who would walk with her head bowed in the hallway, going straight to class without stopping to "chat" or "catch up" or "hang out" with others. I didn't willingly engage in human interaction, and perhaps I made good grades. Perhaps I did well on...

    Does anyone know how to begin work in

    blacksmithing? It's not something that I want to do as a career, but I've always been interested in old style blacksmithing. I just don't know enough about it to know where to begin. :/

    Nobody ever had life easy,

    we all go through struggles that shape us and change us. At times our losses may be far more than our gains, we may start looking at others who seem to have it better than us with envy and hate not knowing what they gone through or what they have lost in return of that gain.

    I'm suicidal but I don't want to die.

    .. I've suffered from bipolar depression for almost 6 years now, I've lost so much I've lost my innocence to a monster that raped me, I've lost friends and I've lost hope that everything eventually will be fine. It wont. I just want to be able to live my life to the fullest.

    Life is a precious thing.

    Never be afraid to live it boldly and love unconditionally, because you never know how long you may have with someone. Laugh and smile, hug and dance and live every moment with your heart and soul. Most of all have the courage to be kind.

    Part of life is realizing

    when to walk away, when to fight and when to just give up. I'm still trying to get this part down but I think its easier to admit defeat than to fight for things that I dream of at night.

    The future of the past.

    I have to remember, when I am deep in battle. And the odds are against me, not to get rattled. To stay pure of heart, and clear of mind. When I fight with myself, to myself I am unkind. It is the past, and the future my foes. They remind me, of fear and of time long ago. When...
