Giving Thanks


Life is a wondrous fucked up journey in which we must jump hurdle after hurdle, avoid roadblocks and open ourselves up to those who matter along the way.
We must find love and hold on to it for as long as possible, be strong and never back down to a challenge, and help all the people we can as we go.
I am with loved ones this Thanksgiving and it makes me happy to sit back and relax. In my post thanksgiving feast, I sit passing out and flash back to the past 5 years of my life.
I've done allot, been through allot and have lived some very happy and very sad moments.
I haven't had the best of luck lately and have faced a large amount of adversity but I still feel in the end that I have much to be thankful for.
We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
For everything I have, I am truly thankful.
I only want for the true path to enlightenment, full monetary comfort and a love that lasts.
I will do anything and everything in my power to deserve these things.
Not just to find them and have them but to DESERVE them.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
