"Victory is always possible for he who refuses to stop fighting."

Napoleon Hill

So long as you continue doing what you want to do you will always be able to win. A cornered creature hasn't given up it just has to come up with new tricks. There's never really a good time to give up on anything. If you feel like you need to give up maybe you should look at it from a different perspective. Usually when you can't find an answer it's because you're looking for their answer not your own. You style give you a reason to do something if you're not doing it for yourself your way you more than likely don't have a reason to put your interest into it. So from this point on you should consider making everything for you and your way. If you work at Burger King flipping burgers think of it as you're trying to make the perfect burger to prove that you can do it for you.

"It's not a matter of if. It's just a matter of when."
~Lost to the ages~

Be ready and be prepared for anything and everything. Just because it's unlikely doesn't mean that it won't happen. It might be unlikely for you to win the lottery but when it does happen you have to be prepared for whatever comes next. It may be unlikely for a fire to start but you have to be prepared for it. Unlikely doesn't mean impossible and even when you do say impossible it's simply improbable. Nothing in the world is impossible only improbable. Cars aren't equipped with airbags for if you have an accident, they're equipped for when you have an accident. aspiration

Sorry for being away I have been ill and this quote because of what I was born with and my the tragedy my best friend is recuperating from speaks strongly about how I feel.

"Friendship is not based on what a person can do for you or how they fit into your narrow selfish view of the world - simply is. You will know your friends because they are the ones still standing by you despite yourself - those that abandon you, berate you behind your back or leave when things no longer serve their needs are not your friends." ~L. Spearman

Today's quote

"Whatever we learn has a purpose and whatever we do affects everything and everyone else, if even in the tiniest way. Why, when a housefly flaps his wings, a breeze goes round the world; when a speck of dust falls to the ground, the entire planet weighs a little more; and when you stamp your foot, the earth moves slightly off its course. Whenever you laugh, gladness spreads like the ripples in a pond; and whenever you're sad, no one anywhere can be really happy. And it's much the same thing with knowledge, for whenever you learn something new, the whole world becomes that much richer."

The demand for certainty is one which is natural to man, but is nevertheless an intellectual vice. ... But so long as men are not trained to withhold judgment in the absence of evidence, they will be led astray by cocksure prophets, and it is likely that their leaders will be either ignorant fanatics or dishonest charlatans. To endure uncertainty is difficult, but so are most of the other virtues.

Success is just a matter of attitude.

Just a word from me

I feel compelled to say something here and I hope that you can hear the sincerity in my words and leave with an understanding of what I am sharing. I have lost so many people in my life to the Angel of Death; from grandparents, and cousins, to young nephews and friends. This last death is so profound for me because I was there.

He came home from work, ate, enjoyed some time with his wife and in a moment it was over.

The memories and pain, the unaccomplished goals and plans to never happen, words that will never be said or heard. All in a moment. A passing second, not a here today and gone tomorrow even though that is a true statement; but in a flash the mere blink of an eye everyone and everything had transformed into something post that blink.

Tell those you love you love them often, forgive those that you have held anger toward, reconnect with someone that is important to you. Swallow the pride and make peace. We are given one opportunity and none of us know how long we have. My nephew had only 14 years, my friend that just passed had 39 years and my grandmother had over 80 and none of them were enough time for those that loved them.

If you can't make amends you can still let them know that you love them. Don't let them go without you knowing that they know and don't you die without having let them know what you really felt.
