When one cannot depart from the present or the past, the future shall be beyond their reach; they meander a path inattentive and without destination.
The anguish you feel when you are embarking on something important, or at least want to, and there is a room full of no one that you can use as a sounding board.
That which causes us trials shall yield us triumph: and that which make our hearts ache shall fill us with gladness. The only true happiness is to learn, to advance, and to improve: which could not happen unless we had commenced with error, ignorance, and imperfection. We must pass through the darkness, to reach the light.
We do not get to choose how we start out in life. We do not get to choose the day we are born or the family we are born into, what we are named at birth, what country we are born in, and we do not get to choose our ancestry. All these things are predetermined by a higher power. By the time you are old enough to start making decisions for yourself, a lot of things in your life are already in place. It’s important, therefore, that you focus on the future, the only thing that you can change.
I slowly began to realize that I should be doing more with my life, and although I felt my past choices were good, it was only the beginning of what was to lie ahead for me.
Remember how far you’ve come, and you won’t have to rely on a destiny for your future. It will come on your own.
You see it as me going back. I see it as me staying on track.
People don't get to our ages without having pasts. I'm more interested in the future.
