I moved to Georgia from Southern California in 2000. Due to my large family of animals (being unable to find suitable housing elsewhere because of them and refusing to give them up), I just kinda got stuck in this place.
I'm always looking for the opportunity to get out of here, but in the meantime, I want to work towards leaving the local animals in better circumstances than I first discovered them.
I think it's important to follow your heart. Sometimes feeling the break is just a necessary part of the journey.
The scars that life leaves you with don't have to be seen as mistakes. Instead, you can choose to view them as the marks of a survivor. It isn't a failure if you choose to grow from it. It's an achievement if that growth leads you to positive action. Nobody is perfect and no situation is either, but that doesn't mean it's time to give up.
I love popcorn, french fries, ketchup and cool autumn nights under the moon. I don't drink alcohol, but I have a bad addiction to Pepsi. I don't drive and since there is no bus system here, that's pretty darn inconvenient. My office is purple and I read my horoscope every day even though it is rarely accurate. I often sit and/or lie in odd positions. It's rare that I set foot in a gas station without buying atleast one scratch-off lotto ticket. Every dream I ever have includes some form of water. My microwave keeps me from starving. I have been vegan since January 2000 and no, my shoes are not leather.
I embrace the good, the bad and the naughty. I am the dark and the light.
I must hold my sword to the sky and be fearless in the face of impending war. I must summon that part of myself that paces in wait of resurrection. I must be the strength that endures and the beauty that inspires. I must be myself. I must charge ahead to meet the opposing forces and I must conquer them. I need to give a respectful nod to who I have always been. I need to rise to the occasion and be her champion.
