We all want to be as successful as possible with our time between now and the grave. I can’t say that they’ve wanted to fail. People get depressed, suicidal and repeatedly do self-destructive things, but we are not born yearning to get into these situations. We all want to be happy. We all want to do well. We all want to be successful.
It’s easy to lose yourself in your travels. You are but one person in a world where only the strong survive. There’s power in numbers, and being a loner will only keep you on the fringes for as long as you live. Solitude will never let you climb the social ladder; get to be as rich, famous or important as you think you deserve to be; nor will it help you achieve all of those dreams you’ve held for so long. We know what it takes to succeed in this world — we see it in the people we place on pedestals: the ruthlessness; the decisiveness without worry of consequences; the willingness to do whatever it takes to make yourself a success.
Life is unpredictable. Try to keep tabs on it, try to plan out each and every step, and you’re destined for failure. It might not happen immediately, and it may not even happen all at once, but eventually the threads of your plan will unravel unless you can grow, adapt and make good of the pitfalls that you’ll eventually face in your life.
Hey all, So I have a lot of posts that are in “draft” status at the moment, so I figure you could do with hearing my voice, since it’s been a little while. Enjoy a little slice of my life as I try to keep improving the things around me and trying to create a diamond out of the rough clutter all around me.

Sometimes when you’re stressed, you won’t really recognize that it’s there. There are times where it’ll be more obvious — you might eat less, feel down or lose sleep over things. You might react to things emotionally — get angrier, sadder or just plain crazier depending on what’s going on.
You rarely figure out just how much you’ve grown up until someone points out for you.
You can’t be a slob forever. You get tired of:
- not being able to find things
- not having places to put things
- having too many things that you’re not going to use
