Thank you for letting me go. Thank you for letting me down. Thank you for breaking your promise that you will always be around. Thank you for lying and misleading me. Thank you for trying and trying to convince me that you were the one for me. I thank you from all the way down to the bottom of my heart.I thank you for reminding me that you played a part, a part in my never ending search for the one who was created to hold on to my heart ♥

Many people have dreams,but some rarely live them. Instead they talk about them,pray about them,make wishes about them never ever achieving them. If you want your dreams to come true the truth is you have to work for them. Like a normal job you have to put in the blood, sweat and tears for them. If you actively pursue your dreams 8 hours a day like your clocking into work and devote your energy and thoughts into them they have no choice but to come true. The problem is for many that’s just not possible. Life has got in the way. Life has become so hard and so demanding that its a struggle to live our dreams. That’s why when we see people living their dreams we become frustrated and angry. We personalize others peoples acheivements because we know how passionate we are about out our own.We call people who pursue their goals “selfish”. But really are we not selfish in NOT pursuing our goals. If we have a gift or a passion to share with the world is it not our obligation to focus on enriching the lives of others with the gift that has be given to us  from birth? Pursuing anything but your talents and diffusing the flame that burns inside ones soul is death. Every day we wake to the same thirst. The desire to be happy and free. Lifes pursuit. Yet everyday we find a reason not to. Responsibilities,kids,careers,disabilities that we use against ourselves instead of for ourselves. Dreams are like the solid non moving ground we all long to stand on while spinning out of control on the merry-go-round of life. We see it,but we are to afraid to jump. To afraid to stop and get off. Instead we crawl closer to the middle and close our eyes praying and hoping someone will save us. Until we demand from ourselves,train our minds to follow our instructions and lead our lives purposefully we will find ourselves old and Grey regretting we didn’t try harder. Quit running the rat race and start knocking down walls. Become obsessed with living out your dreams today and stop putting them off for when you have more time,more money or less responsibility. Your life is the reflection of how much work you put into it. Start putting into life what you want to see come out of it.Start now.

Who cares?


Is it not the greatest of all things to pursue your own happiness? Falling into the concept that you must sacrifice for others may give you the illusive feeling of martyrdom but the reality is you are only feeding the Ego. Feeding the Ego creates the illusion that your happy. But happiness can never be achieved by living through the image of self. Until you come to terms with what it takes to make you happy and you give up the idea that you have to suffer for it you will only continue to suffer because you keep telling yourself that your suffering is the “Right” thing to do,in turn feeding the Ego.

Are we seriously having this discussion? Atkin’s “Legitimate Rape” comments are begging to be touched!! This is what we’ve come to. There are some people who really believe that taking the very essence of a women against her will can at any point be legit? There’s no argument to be made,it’s never ok. Tell the 12 year old little girl who has to go thru twenty 50 year old men a week to pay for her rent and food that she can “shut that whole thing down” because it’s really not happening. Or maybe you can explain to your teenage daughter that just entered her freshman year at college that because some jerk slipped a date rape drug into her drink and she drank it that it’s half her fault. Rape is rape. Yes,Akin I will agree with you there is a moment of shutting down when being raped,it’s called Defense mechanism, a coping device the brain is triggered to engage when it’s need to survive is in a choke hold and can no longer fight. Your body becomes a shell that you crawl deep into and close your eyes praying that at the very least you come out ALIVE!! How dare anyone make an ignorant comment like this and never see the inside of a jail cell. The prison rape victims live in day after day is very LEGITIMATE,Atkin,VERY legitimate.

Die in each day.


If we never experience death we can never experience life. In each moment of now we are living but to get to the next moment we have to die in what is happening today. If we continue on where we are at we can never get to where we are going. Its a natural process of life. So often we resist the pain of letting go and we refuse to bury what no longer serves us purpose. Like the decaying flesh we reek of the stench of our bodys returning to the ground. We can no longer clothe ourselves in our dead skins. Every day we must put on the new now. And every morning we must peel away the past. It’s the only way.
