" In life, there are people who care and people who don't. If you are one of the caring, you will shine in the eyes of someone no matter where you live, how you dress, or who your friends are. To see people shine out to me gives me the greatest joy in the world - to know people do care."

" Going through struggles only makes you stronger. In life we deal with pain, rejection, criticism, failure and all sorts of things that only knock us down for a second. We have to learn to not let the bad get in the way of our life. Be strong and realize that everything happens for a reason. No one has a perfect life and no one likes to struggle but it's how you deal with your problems that make you the person you are today. Live, laugh, love, and don't let anyone bring you down. Life is too precious to spend being down. When you're sad, smile. Show people you make the best out of anything you go through & don't be afraid of being YOU --- because that's what's important."

This quote really meant something to me because the 14 years that I have been living, I never really looked at the future and all the good things that were to come for me and long life road that is to come. So now, whenever I'm always thinking about the past and thinking about all the things that I did to embarrass myself, I think, "Hey I can't change the past but I can certainly change the future". This quote also means, "Don't look at where you have been, look at where you're going."September 13, 2006
