I learned to stop worrying so much about the mistakes of my past and regrets of my future, and instead, spend my time planning and dreaming and wishing and hoping for all of the things that I'm going to do someday.
I get angry because there have been times I have needed you and cried out for you. I have hoped and prayed and begged for you. I asked, and you never answered. I called out, and there was no response. I searched, and you were nowhere to be found. If you are reading this, I found you.
I can’t tell you anything about his face, but I can tell you what lies behind his eyes. I can’t tell you about his body, but I can tell you about his heart. I can’t tell you about his good looks, but I can tell you about his good works, something that matters a whole lot more when the good looks fade away. I can't tell you his name, but I know that one day it will be my own.
Thanks to the shadows of my past, I have learned that life is really as dark or as light as we want to make it. We can allow our setbacks to define us, or we can define our setbacks. If you spend your whole life looking through your rear-view mirror, you’ll miss all of the beauty that resides right out your front window.
Breath, strength, flexibility and balance connected my mind and body for the greater good for 1,200 seconds, yet one thought caused my body to abandon my mind entirely, left alone, helpless, and broken.
Sometimes we find ourselves caught in the middle of a storm. And sometimes, caught in the middle of a storm, we find ourselves... It was not until I stepped out of my world that I realized just how big and beautiful our world really is.
I think it is about time that I let my heart do some exploring. It is time that I stop thinking about questions I cannot answer, and start searching for answers instead. It is time to stop dreaming and start doing, put my money where my mouth is, and get my hands dirty.
