I'm just discovering the beautiful & tragic life of a girl in her early 30's and I try to do the best I can with what I've got. My biggest blessing is that when the sun comes up each morning I get another chance at making a difference in the world and that's all that really matters. Be as you are. I like to describe myself as bursting with awesomosity, but most people don't believe me. I try to tell them that awesomosity isn't something that can easily be seen, but that it is extremely subtle and only those that are highly attuned to the forces of nature can sense such a force of awesome. I like to think that I am a kind person, although my kindness is based on my respect for an individual, so your mileage may vary. The same thing goes for how gentle I can be with people. I am a realist and often tend to look at the darker side of human nature to set my expectations. At the same time, I am an optimist and hope that people will surpass my expectations, but I find that it is much harder to be disappointed when expectations are set low. I self-analyze constantly. By the time I got to college, I had a very deep understanding of myself, and I continue to self-analyze because I realize that people change over time, and it is interesting to see how I have changed over the years. In high school, I understood myself about as well as I do now, but I was far more judgmental of others. It was only after my family and I experienced situations I didn't think would ever happen that I began opening up more and more to people who did not follow a strict set of rules like I did. Over the years I have become a lot more laid back and respectful to others who share different viewpoints, but I still have a fire within me that will flare up when I come across certain kinds of people.
True love isn't Romeo and Juliet who died together. It's Grandma and Grandpa who grew old together.
"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone." - Audrey Hepburn
"The beauty in a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart; the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring and that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years." - Audrey Hepburn
