some things i've learned along the way...

i guess that i believe if you have something on your heart, you should share it. sooner or later it will probably come out one way or the other. always be honest. don't be brutal. always be loving. always share and be kind. never believe everything you hear. take interest in others. don't eat so much junkfood. exercise..it really does help you feel better. learn to forgive people, even the ones that hurt you more than anything. find what you believe in. no one can make you believe something you don't. don't follow; lead. i know that they always say to never regret anything, but i say...regret...move on and learn from it. don't hold grudges because the only person hurting is you. life isn't a race or a competition; we're all given different lots and paths in life...take your time to find the right way. i believe Jesus died on the cross to save me from my sins and he is the one truth and the only way. don't take my word; i say find out for yourself. laughter is the sweetest gift someone can give you. forget the past and truly forget it or you'll never have a better future. hold onto true love. if you love someone tell them even if they don't tell you back. laugh at yourself. love your enemies. love all. you can't please everyone and if you are then something is wrong.you only have one family so love them and know them. be true to yourself because you live with yourself always.listen to your heart. don't be cliche like i am right now. don't be generic when someone is upset. have at least one good failure in life. fall down. cry a good cry. take a roadtrip and don't use a map; just drive. never give up.ever.

to be continued....

wake up

you just woke up. your eyes adjust to the light.you can see but your ears are ringing. you can't hear anything at all. your heart starts to beat fast. your eyes widen and blood quickly runs through your veins. you walk to the bathroom and look in the mirror. say a few words outloud to see if you can hear. nothing. absolutely nothing.

what would you do if you woke up and something so precious was taken from you without any warning? how terrible would it be to lose your sight or hearing? how terrible would it be to lose a limb? how terrible would it be to know that you had those and now suddenly they are gone forever?

sometimes, i feel as if i take so much for granted. i can see. i can hear. i can walk. i can talk and laugh. i can comprehend. i can run and play. i can sing. i can draw and think. i have so much in my life. i am so blessed.

God has given me so much. this life isn't a race or a competition. i've been given my lot and i'm so thankful. i think it is hard to imagine what life would be like without the things i've already been given and its hard to grasp how some people make it in this life. it just has been on my mind how blessed i am & i don't want to take it for granted.

i need to wake up. i need to live more.
this is life right now. it doesn't wait for anyone.
