Went for a nice little adventure in a new park yesterday and as I was walking, I noticed the sun shinning through the trees. I felt an urge to take a picture and I’m happy I did. This picture makes my heart smile, I can feel the golden rays touch my skin once more and wrap me in its loving warmth. #theuniverseismagical #lifeisbeautiful  #nofilter

So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?

Hey-o!

So, I’m planning to hitchhike before winter comes, I still have a ton of stuff to sell and get prepared but has anyone done this before and if so can you help a sista out? I’m looking up the laws to see what I can and can not do, any pointers or anything would be greatly appreciated. Please and thank you! :)

It’s bothersome seeing so many people complain about such miniscule occurrences every day. There’s so much in life to be thankful for and everyday you seem to complain about something. I watched my brother for a year and a half battle cancer, not once did he complain, not once did he cry, not once did he ever get down on himself. Towards the end of his battle he had one lung, 3/4’s of his chest was cancer, they took out 4 liters of fluid from his chest around his heart, and even then he did not complain once. He lost his hair, he had sunburn from radiation, he had to ride the train for 2 hours at 7 and 8am, still never once complained. He lost weight, he had no energy and at times while grocery shopping he had to take an electric wheelchair, he lost partial ribs from surgery, he went through chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, clinical drug trial and guess what, he still never once complained. The last few hours he was with us he laid in bed could barely open his eyes but he was still smiling and joking around with us, not only that, then he said beautiful words of wisdom to everyone in the room “Do something with your life, do something positive, and do something for you!”. If this young man can go through all of this and not complain once, I’m sure your life isn’t half as bad as you thought it was. So the next time you go to complain about how bad everything is, look around and then look in the mirror. Is it really that bad? Smile, life is wonderful. :)

Nothing will ruin your 20’s more than thinking you should have your life together already.
