" The most important thing in life is not to care what anyone thinks, if they call you crazy, say it's impossible, or even HATE you for what you think, because at the end of every single day for the rest of your life, when you're lying in bed in those few moments before you fall asleep, it's YOUR mind that you are left with. So do what you want, what YOU care about, and you'll have no problems falling asleep at night."

August 11, 2008
I wait in your heart
I wait for you to see
You look outside
You search desperately for me

I wait for the day you will look inside your heart
To find me, for I am stuck there like a dart
I will never go away, I wait patiently for the day
When you find that the inspiration you seek may
Has been hidden right inside you.
Then you will find me, and I will find you.
And then you'll be truly unconquerable, for no one
Can fight with us, your every task will be done

The greatest dawn is after the darkest night
When no one feels able to conquer darkness's might
People who are separated one day are united
People become friends who once fought
All you need is to look into your soul
And then you'll find me, in the deepest hole

Author Unknown --- Submitted by Kelsey S., Age 17 --- South Africa
At some point in our life, everything just seems to come crashing down on us. When I read this quote it made me realize that we can only take life one day at a time. We may not know what tomorrow has in store for us, but that doesn't mean we can't dream that it will be something great. For all the teens out there, don't underestimate the power of your heart. You will be amazed at the rewards you receive if you just believe.
