i decided that i wanted to stop half living my life, and embrace things as they happened. take opportunities, learn to fly with the wind, dance, twirl, breathe, live, smile, be. i wanted to love and be loved, and i wanted to have a positive influence on all the people that i met. you never can, of course; but i wanted to leave an impression on people and i wanted people to realise that it wasn’t a bad thing to be yourself. somedays i wake up and i want to throw my arms wide to the world and say, bring it on; but i remember that there are consequences for actions and can you live with yourself afterwards?
