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.

"The fact is, we're just people. We screw up, we lose our way. Even the best of us, have
our off days. Still we move forward. We don't rest on all the rules or celebrate the lives we've saved in the past."

-Grey's Anatomy-

"Life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences, but rather, it's a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite sublime plan."


"Guess what? I have flaws. What are they? Oh I donno, I sing in the shower? Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me-- no, don't sue me. That is opposite the point I'm trying to make."

-The Office-


We really only are who we allow ourselves to be. We can be winners or losers, saints or sinners, real or fake. We have been granted the ability to discern good from evil, and the decision is ultimately ours to make. We are a compilation of everything we decide to pick up over time. We are combinations of all the people who leave the biggest imprints on our hearts and hardest impacts on our lives--positive or not. We are a series of mistakes and lessons. We take our experiences and, with them, better or worsen our futures. We break hearts, relationships and promises like curfews, but hate the world when the tables are turned and our own hearts are suffering. We lie to people we love, and we say it's for the best. We forgive (sometimes) but we never, ever forget. We are the bigger person but at times, we are our own army. We fight, we cry, we laugh and we love. We try to deny the things that are best for us, while giving in to everything that we know is wrong. We make excuses. We struggle. We fall down (a lot) and often, we get right back up again.. But sometimes, we choose to stay fallen for a little while.. and that's alright.

We aren't perfect. No man is. We weren't created to defy the rest of mankind, and we certainly weren't made to hate the world, either. We weren't designed to win all of the time, nor were we intended to always lose. We are all, in our own individual way, "destined for greatness."

We are merely human. People. Each a separate experiment, if you will. We are allowed to slip up/screw up/mess up... Many, many times. We are given chances to make things right time and again, without carrying the burden of absolute perfection. We aren't required to be anybody other than the person that we ourselves choose to become. And that in itself, even amidst an often dark & ugly world, is truly beautiful.
