Choosing My Own Way Of Life

"Sometimes, I've believed more than six impossible things before breakfast."
I do all sorts of crazy crap with my friends just because it's fun, we call it making memories.
I don't care what people think about me, never have. I march to the beat of my own drum, always will.
A lot of people have told me they think I've changed...honestly, I just believe I'm in the process of finding myself.
I've made mistakes in my life; and I'm guessing I'll probably make a few more before I finally bite the dust. But that's okay with me. I believe some of the best learning experiences of your life are your biggest mistakes.
Sometimes, I laugh at things that aren't funny and I smile at things that don't matter.
I respect myself.
I'm not afraid to take a stand for what I believe even if it means I'm standing alone.
I am broken, alone, empty and confused some days.
I have also been made whole; never been more sure of myself; and felt overwhelming love.
Some days I am under the impression I am bullet proof.
I am smart. I am strong. I am stubborn.
I'm a fighter.
I will probably offend you at some point. You'll get over it.
I'm full of secrets.
I've witnessed and survived things most people don't even have to face in their nightmares.
You mess with my family or friends, and you mess with me.
I am beautiful, inside and out.
I don't easily forget.
I'll never let you see me cry.
I put up walls for a reason.
I listen and I observe. A lot of people take this as being shy. They're wrong.
If I've never met you, I can tell you a lot about yourself just by looking at your shoes. Think I'm lying? Try me.
I'm a bookworm.
I write. A lot. A whole freaking lot.
I am athletic but I am not graceful.
I am both silly and sarcastic.
I have big dreams and great taste in music.
I am mysterious.
I am spontaneous.
I am driven.
I am determined, passionate, old-fashioned and a little bit crazy.
I make wishes on stars and yellow lights at intersections.
I still watch Disney movies and I love to color.
I have known heart break...with this comes the understanding that some hurts never fully heal, but the pain does become bearable.
No matter how many times I fail, I will get back up.
I'm proud of where I come from.
I'm proud of who I am.
I will be unforgettable, simply because I'm me.
And I will always live for the moments that I can't put into words.
