Stand Tall

stand-tall-this-too-shall-pass

Since the beginning of my MySpace, I’ve always posted my About Me section into a blog every time I change it.

I’m due.

Over the last year or so I’ve become insanely selfish and very self absorbed into my own life and all its bullshit..  and I have not updated accordingly to the current situations.  Frankly, as much as I enjoy MySpace.com, It is NOT my life and NOT how I define myself as a person.  As personal and intimate as I am in my rants and blogs…  you will never know all there is to me unless I let you get close to me.

in other words…

You don’t know the half of it.

===============================================

Life… it’s full of unpredictable circumstances and situations that you couldn’t possibly prepare for all of them. The only way to truly gain perspective on something which we cannot understand, is to live it, breathe it, and embrace it for what it is. For better or worse.

What I’ve learned in my seemingly old age, is that you have to take the good with the bad. You can’t possibly expect the world to grace you with this existence forever and always. Even those that live that most charmed lives have to face the music and battle a few conflicts now and again.

It builds character.

You will never grow as a person without experiencing serenity.

Somethings my mother used to tell me has stuck with me all these years… something that moves me when I think about my personal character… my place in this world…

“Tough times never last… tough people do.”

and

“This too shall pass.”

there is a LOT of sick irony in the 2 quotes, but the message I take from the both of them is this:

 

Stand Tall,

 

what doesn’t kill you can only make you STRONGER.

and ladies and gentlemen

I am some kind of bad ass.

Being real and genuine is something I’ve learned to pride myself on. Once I realized that I was becoming something that I hated… a robot to the demands of society, I turned around my personal dischord for myself and sprouted wings of personal freedom.

I have been to the dark side, and I have seen the life I so chose to leave behind, and not a day goes by that I don’t appreciate those that gave me the strength to become the man I am today.

I will always be myself, for myself.

I have to look in the mirror everyday and consider whether or not I like what I see. I can’t say that I always have, but I live for THE MOMENT,

THIS Day

and friends, this day, I like who I am.

get to know me, and you might too.
