"Love can build a fire off a spark of romance but will burn out quickly if there is no wood."
Copyright 1995 Lindsey Choate
I wrote this in an 8th grade English paper and I remember my teacher commenting in the margins, "I wish I had written this..." I didn't know at the time how applicable this quote would be for the rest of my life! It is so easy to "think" you are in love and let things burn out of control, but if you do not take the time to get to know each other and build a foundation the "fire" will quickly extinguish!

I think we all go through this at some point in our relationships, when someone new comes into our lives and takes an interest in us, and your current relationship isn't doing so great; the thought of leaving the one you love for this new adventure may cross your mind.

I really feel that this quote has helped me in my recovery. Everyday I look in the mirror and see what my personal environment has done to me...and I strongly believe if I don't change, I will continue to be a product of it.

"In a world of everybody
Anybody can be somebody
But somebody has to make up his mind
Not to be everybody
Because everybody cannot be somebody.

"It's not what's happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it's your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you're going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny."

"Imagine life as a game, juggling of five balls named Family, Friends, Health, Spirit and Work. You have to keep all of them in air at a time. Soon you realize that Work is a rubber ball; if you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls are made up with glass - if you drop any one of them, they will be irrevocably nicked, scuffed, damaged or even shattered."
