taking responsibility for your own personal life

i have noticed and determined, people do not take responsibility for their own actions. they say or do things and really never live up to it. as i sit here this morning, i see things in a different light and it has to be said, most people are creatures of disguise.

how can we live in a world so full of chaos and never truly …

why do people give up

failure is inevitable sometimes and i have seen it in many shapes and forms. it is easy to be negative when you feel as though nothing good is happening in your life. i remember a time when my life was completely shut off and for months i wouldn’t even interact with people.

it takes great strength to build yourself out of a hole, determination to …

.courage

in life, we all need something to believe in (sounds like a song) and sometimes we just need courage.

if we go through life never attempting anything, why are we here?

.just a moment in time

life can reveal many things, people say whatever they want, how you perceive it becomes your epic reality.

we can not allow people to dictate how we live, how we think and especially how we act. our …
