The Road Ahead

Photo credit: LunaDawnImages

Sometimes the road of life stretches before us, way farther than we can see, and it gets terrifying. It's really important to take everything one step at a time. If you don't, it is easy to get overwhelmed with "what if"s and silly little worries. In the past few years, I've witnessed this time and again--not just in my own life, but in the lives of my friends as well. The moment you allow yourself to get caught up in silly little worries, it becomes extremely difficult to break free and to enjoy the magic of each day. 

That's the beauty of life: the adventure. We need to remember to not take things too seriously... sit back, surround yourself with creative and inspirational people, and enjoy the ride.

Black Ink In Their Eyes

The problem is you think poetry is about words. But the greatest poets I ever met, never wrote a single word.

[reblogged from: I Wrote This For You]

In this Life...

Create something to last beyond you. Plant a tree and nourish it and watch it grow. Write a piece and have it published. Build something enduring.

All that counts in life is intention. 
-Andrea Bocelli 

Random and pointless

A friend of mine posted a little random quiz, so I decided to do it for fun. I'm placing it under the cut. If you're looking for something to do to pass a bit of time, feel free to check it out. Otherwise you may as well just skip this post. 


I have been looking for this for a while!

Linked below is a website that allows people to select words they feel describe me. This is what I was hoping to find before posting a few months back asking how people view me. Please follow this link and click 5 or 6 words, then enter your name. I'm extremely interested in seeing everyone's responses.

“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same”
-Nelson Mandela

I have such a deep love and respect for Nelson Mandela. Every time I learn more about him, that feeling grows even deeper.

Reminder :

Show appreciation to those around you. Take nothing for granted, and especially no people.
You never know how long they'll be around, and sometimes you can't have any idea how great it feels to hear an encouraging word.

The pursuit

Feeling a little helpless tonight.
Negativity tried to follow me to this coast.
Just can't let it get me down.

Ha sido dos ya.
Qué vívido, qué lejano, qué doloroso.
Todavía extraño a tí. Cada día.

reckless chase

At some point everyone has to stop chasing sluts and whores and fantasies and simply find satisfaction.

You can spend your whole life abandoning happiness for "what if"s and the question of "will that person be better? " can spend your whole life trading out one person you find attractive for another.

Or you can seek out someone who accepts you, who knows you, who loves you at your best or worst or most vulnerable or most strange. Someone you can be yourself around and not get tired of. Someone you can share every bit of yourself with and who will still accept you--mistakes and all.

So many people never seem to learn that.
