Here I am laying down listening to the beat of my heart happier than ever stronger than ever. Got to the point in my life where I work every night till the sweat runs like water on the floor because I said enough is enough I stood up I listened and I made my choice. Now, now it is time for you to make yours are you just gonna sit there and take what life is handing you or are you gonna get off your ass and start telling life what to give you. Because that, that is what living is all about. Not laying in bed crying about the ones you can't have or those who don't want you. Trust me I was there I did that but I stopped I opened my eyes and I realized that those people they are gonna be the ones to come running back one day asking you to treat them the way you always did. That moment is when you have to make the choice to be stronger or to be well to be who you were. In that case you have failed in becoming a better person. Now I ain't saying that I'm an expert on living Coz I ain't but trust me when I say that letting go is what strengthens you in life. I know it doesn't always feel that way and you feel like you need someone but in all honesty do you, do you really? All you need in your life is having those around you that encourage you to become a stronger person and that can help you become a better human. Those people well those are the friends you call family and those are the ones you need to keep.

So stop using excuses in your life and start keeping your word not to those you promised something but to your self because soon enough you will realize that sticking to your word made you the new and improved you. Stop using excuses and start owning up to what you did and said!
