I've created & kept this blog to compile the thoughts, dreams and wisdom that I've discovered from others or merely written myself. This blog is, in a sense, an expression of everything that is me.. Whether I wrote it or not. The most recent entries are a series of quotes, lyrics and videos.. But travel back through the archives and you'll delve deep into my heart, through my own words.

To those who I've quoted or borrowed from: Thank you for being beautiful.. for deeply inspiring me in one way or another. I hope you find that I've used your material in an appropriate fashion.. I try always to cite my sources. I take NO credit for that which is not my own.

It's amazing how much life can change in just one year. Friends, jobs, relationships, feelings and mind-set's can come and be gone in just a matter of moments... and it's the way we respond that will truly either "make or break" us, molding us into either better or less of a person. Someone once said that, "what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger." In times of even the greatest suffering, society expects us to fail or give up fighting. Overcoming the toughest hurdles is proof that strength & determination are neccessary to triumph in life. Many believe that love can conquer everything... A fallacy that turns out to be the downfall of a great amount of believers. Love cannot solve or fix problems on it's own. People must have the will to solve the problems first. Without the will, it is worthless and pointless to even fight.

I had the will to survive. To get past my shortcomings and depression, and find myself... To put the past behind me, and use what experiences I've had as building blocks and learning guides... As tools to help shape my future. In just the past year, I've found myself to be so much stronger than I ever thought I was capable of. I was eager and open to change, and my will to NOT give up is what helped me build confidence again. I'm happy now... Something I didn't think I'd ever be. I can listen to love songs and smile. I can do so many things now that I never thought possible, and I find that so encouraging. Life has trampled all over me, but it will never keep me down. I'm pro-living, pro-laughter.. and how pro-ANYTHING is someone who is always down?! After all, we DO only live once... I'd rather not waste any more living on misery. I deserve to love & dream & smile... and finally, I can.
