Personal Quotes (1)

Life is full of confusion. Confusion of love, passion, and romance. Confusion of family and friends. Confusion with Life itself. What path we take, what turns we make. How we roll our dice. With a world so big, so vast, so many limitless opportunities, so many decisions that lead to endless possibilities of results. And every choice we make in our hearts, deep down we believe they are the right choice. The choice that will drive our souls forward and bring them to a direction of ultimate happiness. Whether we choose to hurt or to help, in our own soul, our beliefs, they are our own version of the right choice. Though some bring sadness and others bring joy, they always tend to set the path of our lives into a new direction. If we were to choose to believe in love, our own simple trend of true romance, and make choices and actions that lead us into a path of euphoric peace of mind, the thought of death by nature would be our only. The understanding of the human race would know No boundaries. Not all minds as one but all to it's equal representation of love and happiness. Religion, sex, race, orientation, language set aside, all greater or lesser thoughts of intellect and control would be toward a simple subject. The life of our own simple race. The human one. And the life we share with the other lives around us. With my life comes just as many choices as the next. And to some, they might not be the right ones. But in my mind, body, and soul, they drive my life as one of the human kind toward happiness and love. Though some choices may slow our journey, every path we take gives us more familiarity with how our actions affect the world around us. Giving us more opportunities to learn how to help ourselves and others. Some lessons take years to learn, with repeated exposure to the same path sometimes shadowed by the inner conscience of own souls. But eventually we learn, and our journey continues in another direction. Some lessons are harder to handle, the ones that don't break us down to the end of our journey, only allow us to climb higher mountains and break through stronger barriers.
