Dark clouds may hang on me sometimes

Dark clouds may hang on me sometimes, but I'll work it out...

Sometimes you wake up and realize that you're stronger than that.
Stronger than what?
Stronger than anything.
You put your foot down and keep moving. There are no excuses. There is no cheating. The only thing there is is you. And if you want it, whatever it is, you've got to get up and get it because no ones just going to hand you your dreams on a silver platter.
You can't be afraid and you can't let things get you down because the only person that hurts is you. Life moves quickly and it doesn't last forever. If you spend your time worrying, well now you're thirty. If you spend your time being afraid, there's the big 4-0.
Go out and make mistakes. Make a fool of yourself. Do whatever it is you have to to be happy.
In the long run... That's all that really matters.
Surround yourself with people that love you and go for it, whatever 'it' is. You deserve it.
The sands falling from the timer of life. Make sure you're going strong until that last grain touches down.

When you come to the end of your rope,
tie a knot and hang on.
- Franklin D. Roosevelt

Sometimes being right hurts...

Sometimes finding out that you're right isn't satisfying at all. As a matter of fact it can hurt like hell. Like when you think someone doesn't care about you at all, and you tell them how you feel, and then they don't even have the decency to answer you... therefore solidifying your suspicion.

I was thinking about it for a while and if that person cared at all, I'd have heard something by now. But clearly, everything I thought and everything I said was true because here we are about five days later and not a peep.

It especially hurts when you know you've been there for that person every time they called you.

A friendship that can end,
never really began.

I don't like to get political, but...

So, I know I've been out of the loop for a few days, so let me get this right. Instead of people getting ready for the anniversary of 9/11, people are putting down and protesting against a Mosque/community center near the site? Did they all forget that there's one already there that has been there for 20 or so years? Or that over 400 Muslims also died in 9/11? Or that Muslims have a place to pray less than 80 feet from the Pentagon's 9/11 memorial site?

People forget that Americans weren't the only ones who died on 9/11. It was a world wide tragedy. Everyone felt it in some way. It's not fair to punish an entire religion for the actions of some.

(The Westboro Baptist Church is a bunch or ignorant uneducated people, but we don't discriminate against all Baptists, do we? I know that what they do isn't as extreme as what happened on 9/11, but I'm just making a point.)

The military is over there fighting for the freedom of everyone in this country. Everyone. And in a country that prides itself on equality... this doesn't seem very fair to me.

I'm just sayin'. Everyone's entitled to their opinion, and this is mine.

True Friends...

Finding out who your true friends are can be a slap in the face sometimes. You never realize who they are until, unfortunately-and in most cases, something bad happens. And by then, you're left wondering 'how could you have been so stupid?'.

Don't waste your time trying to figure out how you missed the signs. That kind of person is good at what they do. They get what they want from you and pretend to be your best friend... until you no longer produce.

It's almost like a part of life. And on the bright side, it makes you more grateful for those friends you know you can count on.

The next time something goes wrong, look around. The people standing by you will be the ones who've been there all along. <3

Everyone takes something for granted...

You're probably thinking to yourself right now 'not me', but think about it.

Maybe it's having a car, or a job, or someone who takes care of you. Or maybe it's the ability to see the world in all of it's many different colors, or seeing a sunrise, or a shooting star. Or maybe it's the ability to hear music, or laughter, or simply hearing someone say 'I love you'.

Sometimes you forget how lucky you are to have all of the small things that make up your life. You don't realize how wonderful they are because you've never been without them. You should take a moment every now and again and think about all of the amazing things you have in your life. After all, they could all be gone in an instant.

Real success comes in small portions day by day.
You need to take pleasure in life's daily little treasures.
It is the most important thing in measuring success."
- Denis Waitley

Too many people are too busy worrying about what's going wrong that they overlook the things that are going right, no matter how few and far between they may be.

I'm twenty-four years old and tomorrow morning I'm meeting with a surgeon to schedule my second heart surgery.
I feel like for someone my age, I've been through a lot and lived more than 24 years worth of life. It's exhausting but I try not to get upset. And when I do, I don't show it.

I know that nothing lasts forever and eventually things have to take a turn for the better. Sometimes you have to deal with things even if you're not ready. You have to suffer to find out how strong you are. Life is made up of quizzes and whether you pass or fail the test of life is solely up to you. Just remember that when you hit the bottom, the only way to go is up.
