We All Want Answers

We all want answers. All my life I have been searching for answers. I have been waiting for someone to be there to guide me. I have been waiting for someone to say what I need to hear. Then through all my failures and doubts, I realized I have only been looking for myself. I just needed to give myself a chance all along. I needed to believe in myself.

I truly know now that there is wisdom in failure. I am truly proud of myself. Life is about choice, and I have chosen to wake up. I'm not sleeping and dreaming any more. I have decided I want to live it. I want to live vicariously through my heart, and appear through my soul. I no longer strive to be perfect. I only strive to be the perfect me. This is who I am, and this is what I believe. Be honest with yourself because the truth is the only thing that is constant.

No matter what I know that my failures are my passage ways to MY successes. And that goes for everyone. We have to stop looking at failure as this negative thing. Failure is the best thing that ever happened to me. I have failed young so that I can succeed forever. I protect my dreams in the depths of my heart. I know that when people tell me I cannot do something it is because they cannot do it. That's all there is to it. People can be bitter because they let failure win, so they try to take away your life. I'm telling you right now the moment you let them do that, you lose everything.

Obstacles are there to remind us of how bad we want it. If you aren't willing to go through each and every obstacle, you don't want it enough. Here at this point in my life, nothing and no one can hold me back. I am invincible. I have a heart of gold, and who dares to take that way from me? Nobody because I am an army of one. We are all an army of one. That is God's glory. That is your glory. So when you feel beaten, remember to look up, get up, and never give up.

If I fail a million times, that is okay...because I can try again. At the end of the day, at least I tried. But if we fail and give up, does it ever really make a difference? No because it shows you have no character. If you let every punch knock you out, how do you expect to ever win a fight?

When the shit hits the fan, are you going to be the type of person to still be standing? I know I will be. Because I love failure as much as I love success. I love to cry as much as I love to be happy. The reason being is, I am not naive enough to believe that you can have one without the other. Life is about the shades of grey. You have to realize that moderation is key. You need to be sad to understand what true happiness is. You need to truly fail to be able to truly succeed. Anyone who tells you different was probably either a complete failure, or handed everything on a silver platter.

Nothing is beyond my reach. Nothing is beyond your reach. I will fight back, and I hope that you do too. I choose to rise after every failure, and keep pushing. And if I can I will not fall again, but if I do there is always tomorrow to try again. The good die young because the good are truly happy. They no longer need this life any more. They are divine. It takes realizing that to get there.

Failure keeps you alive, and pain reminds you that you are still progressing. The real question is how will you respond to your failures and your pains. How will you decide to go on? There are no specific answers. There is no guide book to life. There is just your heart, and a whisper in your ear that says: You just do it. YOU JUST DO IT!

No complaints, and a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears. Success doesn't accept money as payment. It accepts the emotions that drive you in full.

I know that whenever I get where I am going I may bleed, cry, and sweat every last drop my body has to offer this world. But at least I will know when the world turned its back on me, when the pain was too much to bear I still continued in my dedication to my self. I was still gracious and courageous enough to love life enough to push on.

The whole world can give me every reason not to go on, and turn its back on me completely. But I won't care. I'm still going to come out on top. I'm still going to look at each person who says I cannot do something, and say watch me. I know what I want, and there is nothing else to learn. All that is left is action. I know what I am worth, so I am going to go out and GET WHAT I AM WORTH!

So when I leave this world, I will go out on top. In my heart, I truly know that. Not even a seven nation army is going to hold me back. I promise you that. I may be in a rough spot now, but I know that this is temporary. Pain is always temporary. Happiness can be forever if you choose to live that way. I will show the world how great I am whether they want to see it or not. Whether they want to hear me out, the world is going to hear me. I won't stop writing until my hands fall off. And then I'll just find another way. There is ALWAYS another way. And it could always be worse.

It took me twenty one years to realize all of this. All my life, it took all my life to know that my heart is my greatest weapon. My heart is all I need. So I will continue to push on no matter what comes my way. And like I always love to say: Kill em with kindness. Always smile in the face of adversity. Because even if I don't conquer today, there's tomorrow, and I'll conquer life with that mindset.

This life is battle between you and yourself, no one else. I can and I must, so I will. Just believe that, and believe in YOU, always. And even when you don't just come read this, and realize that I believe in everyone. I believe we are all powerful beyond our own wildest imaginations. I think I always win, so I do. I think I'm great, so I am. And I know I am me, so here I am. Remember to believe you are someone of value, and you will be.

You have to remember to always love yourself no matter what. Stop pointing fingers at people, and blaming them every time things get hard. That is what cowards do. Do you want to be remember as a coward. At the end of life, the only one you can blame is YOU. Just get up, and keep going. You don't have to think about it, just be about it! If you truly want something, then capture it. If you have a dream, then for the love of God and yourself, JUST WAKE UP and live it. If you don't believe in yourself, your life will be meaningless and without belief.

"Limits are set in science by those who fail and don't learn from it. Those who quit and don't keep trying until they die. There are no limits. Anything is possible. There just aren't many people out there willing to believe that, and if you want to be great, you have to believe that. There are no excuses. There are no apologies. Don't say sorry because if you didn't mean it you would have done it differently." - William Joseph Kosko

"The man who wins is the man who thinks he can."

When I get tired, I just remember when Michael Jordan played with the flu.

      I have to say I haven't been on this site very long, but I'm already starting to love it. Before I spent so much time on Facebook posting things, but I'd always get negative responses. Then I made the decision to delete my Facebook and come here. I have to say it is nice to see so many like-minded/open-minded people are out there. It definitely helps you to remember to believe in yourself.

      I like this! What you express is kind of what long distance runners talk about, ultramarathon runners and the like: running ones own race. Got to go with the pain and use it. When life is too easy, nothing good comes of it. Welcome to HP :-)
