What we think we lack determines what we will become in life.
I strongly believe that love is the answer and that it can mend even the deepest unseen wounds. Love can heal, love can console, love can strengthen, and yes, love can make change.
In my experience lust only ever leads to misery. All that suspicion and jealousy and anguish it unleashes. I don’t want those things in my life.
Do not follow vain desires; for verily he who prospers is preserved from lust, greed and anger.
If you feel like there’s no point in living, then something in your life has to change.
One’s life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation, and compassion.
If you love the ocean and the seashore, you realize that the tide will go in and out, and there is nothing you can do to stop it. The water will rise close to you, then recede, again and again. You can only love the sea and the tide on that understanding. And if you want to build anything, build it above the high-tide line. You can appreciate anything that is built below that line, but nothing there will be permanent, and that is the way the sea and tide were meant to be.
I want to honor God by making the most of myself, the most of my life, and most importantly spread his love not through preaching to people, or lecturing people, but rather being the person I am living by my ethics and morals and representing his love through my love for life, and the people around me. I want to share everything I have to offer with the world, and make a difference and help people. I want to show people how great life can be. I want to become a better person.
And now the hand of God has been extended to me, and I’ve grabbed God’s hand and been pulled from the depths of things, and it’s now that I’m on my ascension to the heights of life, and as I pass through the past, it hurts to see who I became, but it feels great to know that I’m no longer alone.
Only love interests me, and I am only in contact with things that revolve around love.
I can live without money, but I cannot live without love.
Most importantly, its better to care too much than not enough. Caring too much will leave you with far less regrets in life than caring too little when all is said and done.

I left a lot behind for this, but its all worth it and no matter how you slice it, its an adventure and its making me a better man everyday.

You must constantly ask yourself these questions: Who am I around? What are they doing to me? What have they got me reading? What have they got me saying? Where do they have me going? What do they have me thinking? And most important, what do they have me becoming? Then ask yourself the big question: Is that okay? Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.
If you walk on sunlight, bathe in moonlight, breathe in a golden air and exhale a Midas’ touch; mark my words, those who exist in the shadows will try to pull you into the darkness with them. The last thing that they want is for you to see the wonder of your life because they can’t see theirs.
