entire life and never experience death, and people like me have had it in our face from an early age. The phone call in the middle of the night or a letter sent home to a young soldiers parents are all things that I have had to experience. My first real taste of loss was when I...
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.
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...
**** 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.
Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
4. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm and...
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.
that run through my mind.
Are like a parent, whose child he can not find.
He knows where she is, but no matter.
His vision is blocked, by an unseen splatter.
Is it pride? Is it sadness? Is it fear?
Selfish emotions, his mind doesn't want to hear.
Love drives him on, aimlessly...
you are always there.
Your luminescence shines, no matter what you wear.
Your pull controls, the greatest of waves.
You are beautiful, in every stage.
When I look, deep into your eyes.
You see, right through me I cannot hide.
You inspire me, to do great things.
When I listen...
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.
once and after that there's nothing only black emptiness in which our whole essence disappear.... Then shouldn't we use this gift of life wisely? Appreciate it and get the best we can out of it ?
Why are we so consumed by other people , parents , society opinions.... Why we...
Nothing significant has changed, but that may be the reason for my discontent. I want things to change. I want to look forward to something, lie awake at night unable to fall asleep because I'm too excited. I haven't felt excited for anything in too long. I feel like I've given...
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...
.. 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.

A lot has happened in life since I was last on EP and changes have been happening. To say that I am living in interesting times resonates and some times have been good and some have been not so good, however this is life. I will write about the good as we all have experienced...
people my whole life and now being independent is hard I hardly spend time at home my home doesn't feel cosy a bit like a garage to hold my car. I want to stay at home more and do my own thing but I'm disconnected from it.
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...
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.
.. But I also need to think on how to save my money.
The thing is... I'm worried about my finances. Got to control myself from spending too much now.
I will do budget trips anyway.
I love my life! Lol!
love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.I’ve learned-that no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back.I’ve learned-that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.I’ve learned-that no...
of my soul
To cherish every second of this journey
For she is nothing but an untamed desire
I want to live
Daring and wild
For the sake of my heart
To ravel in the beauty that is now
For she is passionate, articulate and captivated
She will not be held
I will not go gently...
routine. I'm tired of the way I've been acting. I need a change. A big change. I need to flip this life upside down, turn it around, turn it inside out, something...
I can't stand living this way anymore. I'm not going down a good path, and I need to take action. Starting...
