We all want to be amazing. We all want to be happy and successful. The people you surround yourself with will determine your success. We show you why and how.
The article link above re-affirmed something I was already taught:
Surround yourself with like-minded individuals. If you’re not where you want to be in life, or at least on the way to achieving your “success”…then you should probably re-evaluate the people who consume the majority of your time, and then ask yourself if they are adding or subtracting from your personal growth & development.
One of my favorite books ( The Slight Edge ) taught me that. I highly recommend it, if you’re looking to change your way of thinking, so that you can begin to transform your life.
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn
Just because school is over for the summer, it doesn’t mean the learning stops. So excited to finally read & re-read these books + the hundreds of others sitting on my shelves. The next 4 months are all about building/creating the future I want for myself. Success never sleeps & at the end of the day I’ll be happy enough just doing what I love <3 #writing #music #success #personaldevelopment #personalgrowth #reading #books
I always strive to be a positive contribution to the lives of everyone I meet & I like to surround myself with people who do the same. Likewise, if you only bring negativity to my life…I have no problems leaving you behind. #quotes #bobmarley #positivity

I am not too fond of this, but it is the post that received the most “likes” on my wordpress account. Thus, I suppose it might appeal to some of you. I don’t consider myself a poet AT ALL, but for whatever reason, I spent a lot of time writing like I was.
LOVE SONG FOR NO ONE
Wasting away into the deep, dark abyss.
Suddenly acknowledging it’s you that I miss.
Slipping further and further, soon to no return.
I’m grabbing at strings, almost feeling the burn.
The walls closing in, my head in the dirt.
Remembering again, all the pain and the hurt.
One last ditch effort and I fall to the ground.
I call out your name but you’re nowhere around.
So engulfed in your memory, a slow seamless death.
Attacked by the images of you in my head.
Soaking into this heartache, I begin to feel numb.
Realizing too late, that you were the one.
You gave my life reason, I fell so in love.
I’m wasting away, thought I’d given enough.
Still this fire is burning, I’m surrounded by flames.
Trying hard to escape these emotional games.
I’m stuck on the past and all that we had.
The good times surpassing all of the bad.
And suddenly I’m here with nowhere to run.
Trying to deny the reality that those days are now done…
[OCT. 26. 2008]
Posted a few old poems I wrote. Still slowly trying to NOT hate sharing things I’ve written. Thus, so far I have only posted things I wrote when I was younger because I’d like to think I have grown a lot more as a writer since then. Nonetheless, please feel free to follow me on that blog and/or leave any comments or feedback.
