Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
- Denis Waitley
Let us give something to each person we meet: joy, courage, hope, assurance, or philosophy, wisdom, a vision for the future. Let us always give something.
- Daisaku Ikeda
Thoughts mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a burning desire are powerful things.
- Napoleon Hill
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
I am very honest and sincere. I am intelligent, and i have always been mature for my age, though i try to keep a balance in all things. I also am very in touch with the kid inside me and will never let that die. I have Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle pillow cases and i don't give a sh*tto those that would make fun of that or think any less of me for it. I actually dated someone for a short time that tried to immediately change things about me and made fun of me for having TMNT memorabilia. I don't want to change anyone, i want you to be who you are and i hope that who you are will vibe with who i am. I most certainly do not want to change for anyone else, not the essential things that make me who i am, and not little things that i don't need to change. Of course down the road i would be more than willing to change things but it must be earned, not demanded. I still play video games sometimes. I am all about music, i like to play acoustic guitar, and have gotten into playing drums a little bit. Mostly on Rock Band though! =P I have accomplished a lot and i have earned everything i have ever gotten. I learned a lot of awesome and important lessons by opening my mind at a young age. I am here looking for something serious and something passionate, something real. I don't mind making friends, and would not mind at all making some friends and meeting people to hang out with. I am essentially looking for someone who can handle honesty, who is opinionated and confident, who can admit to being wrong, who will stand and fix what is broken, but who is also proud and outspoken when it's necessary. I have a good job, a nice car, my own place, a handsome son (puppy hehe), a spare guest room, and a healthy mind. I am looking for someone that has at least some of those things going for herself as well. I think that's enough to start a conversation.
