God never makes bloodless stoics; He makes no passionless saints.

"All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on." ~Havelock Ellis



Hi my name is loneliness I am somewhere in your life but if you dry your tears and simply look above you will see that in your life there is love.

Hi my name is doubt I am somewhere in your life but if you walk out on a limb all the way you will see that in your life there is faith.
Hi my name is bitterness I am somewher in your life but if you open up your heart and let go of the pain you will see that in your life there is forgiveness to take it's place.

~I have always believed that you can take two different people, and give them the same experience,same mother, same sphere of influence, and same adversity, and one will choose to go with the flow and strive through the situation, and the other will kick scream and fight there way through causing themselves and those around them nothing but strife. ~
