    I Am More Than That......I Am Meg

    I believe many of us fall subject to our minds.

    As the mind is a powerful thing. It could be deadly if we let it control us. I, myself am guilty of this. But i fight everyday to not let it over come me. As simple things will set it off, even simpler things will help. But only when we see the little things as what they truly...
