“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”
~ Kurt Vonnegut
“I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try.”

We have no control but to grow old, but we do have control to grow up.
Just because I am 3 years shy of 30… doesn’t mean I’m all wise and shit. No, it means I am getting old and I can live a happy life by how I perceive the world. My early twenties were the years of curiosity. My mid twenties were about discovering what I am meant for the world and that still continues on today. All I can say is, everyone goes through shit…we are not victims because we have the strength to survive… if anything we are survivors and us surviving all this madness in the world is how we are shaped as individuals.
All I want to do from this age on is just live for me. I will love those who express genuine love in return. I will respect all of mankind, and move on with my life. I will not allow any failures, loss, negative situations break me. Rather, I will allow all this negative bullshit to inspire me that goodness should always remain in this universe because it is what is needed in this world. I was born to do something, and damn it what ever that will be… I promise God and to myself I will live a meaningful and humble life with the people who love me and spread kindness. I will grow up with a positive spirit.

This makes me angry. Please share… We gotta watch out for each other.
I am beginning to believe in faith and destiny. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c74BSImG4xM
IMA SHOW YOU HOW GREAT I AM!
Death is never an easy thing. I’ve gone to over half a dozen funerals… Family members, family friends.. and friends. For some odd reason, I’ve accepted death. Is that weird? God brought us into the world to give us our time to shine and make a difference. Once we play that role, it’s time to move on. All we can do on earth is be our best to ourselves, and the rest of the world.
That being said, if you have any animosity… just throw it in the garbage. If you’re angry at someone, just blow them a kiss of well being and move on. If you regret not doing something, let it go… you’re still here on earth so you might as well take advantage of your time.
As corny as it is, smile and greet everyone including yourself with kindness.
I’ve been meeting with a lot of people and our topics are always the same. Different person, but always same topic. I wonder if it is a sign. LOL
Blessed to have good family and friends in my life. Thank you, God. Enjoy this from me to you.:)
