About Me I have hope in all things, and I love simple pleasures. I root for the underdog, because I know how it feels. I am working on believing in myself. Iíve got a long way to go on this journey, but itís worth it. In January, I met a walking angel that truly saved my life. I miss her. I believe in Karma and butterflies. I'm spiritual, although Iím not a fan of religion. I hate being boxed in. Music is as essential to me as the air I breathe. No matter what Iím doing, thereís a song playing, whether its out loud or in my head. The lake is my haven; itís where I feel most at home. I write a lot. Writing and words are important to me; nothing feels more natural to me than having a pen in my hand and a blank sheet of paper in front of me. I think in shades of gray, and I see things in a different perspective. Itís all about the here and nowÖmy past may not have been all roses but itís made me who I am today and who I will continue to be. I wish I would have scribbled more, and way outside the lines. I am finally learning how to sleep well, and am taking full advantage of that. I am quiet, but that doesnít mean I am conceited or innocent. It means I donít think Iím good enough to be heard, and I have secrets. I care about people more than they realize, I hate surprises, and I never know how to accept compliments. I have a hard time letting people get close to me, and the truth is everybody I start to trust leaves me in the end anyways. For that, Iím terrified to trustÖI want to; give me a reason. I have a hard time saying goodbye, and Iíd rather not. I am loyal to a fault, if there is such a thing. Iím probably the most trustworthy person youíll meet. Iím a *secret keeper*. I am an observerÖI would rather listen than talk, but I do have a lot to say. Iím just afraid to say it. I like to follow my heart, even if that means taking a wild leap in the dark sometimes. You might say that Iím irrational, but I chase my dreams. I just never expect to catch them. Iím ambitious, impulsive, and I have a big heart. Iím a dork. Iím awkward when I try to be cool. I like being real; all Iíll ever be is myself. Sometimes I speak before my brain is done thinking, and you may catch me saying something really dumb. Iím cynical, but love me anyways. Iíd like to think that thereís a big part of me that most people donít get to see, but if they do theyíre lucky. Iím cool like that. Iíll amaze you every day if you let me. I think Iím in love. sometimes I wonder if thatís enough. I doubt a lot. I am longwinded, but have been told itís a good thing. I think hate and love are strong words, and I use them cautiously. I will say that I hate my father, and I if I tell you that I love you, I mean it wholeheartedly. somewhere along the way i forgot how to smile, but it's in there somewhere

Wild Fact About Me It's not really wild, but I'm in the middle of writing a book, and part of it has won a writing award at school so I have a little hope it'll turn out good.
My Philosophy "Be the change you want in the world."
What Gives Me Hope That there are no coincidences.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by reform our child protection laws
What/who changed my life and why There are two: Tuesdays With Morrie because there's not a page in that book that hasn't made me reflect on the way I've been living my own life. It's like my personal Bible. And then there's Lucy, who showed me that there's a better life out there, the power of positive thinking, and that believing makes it stronger. She saved my life a couple times unknowingly too.
What Bugs Me ignorance, indifference, hate, Any one that would hurt an animal, any one that would hurt a woman, Any one that would hurt a child  
Passions writing, peace, nature, making a difference  
Inspirations walking angels, wednesdays, nature, lakes, learning/knowledge, trust, hope, courage, butterflies, a sense of wonder, old dogs, laughing deeply, a child's art, imagination, kindness, a good book, music, honest and caring work, memories, wisdom  
What Scares Me War - Cruelty - Greed - Indifference, hate, death, abusers  
  Favorites
Role Models Lucy Beal, Gloria Steinem, Oprah Winfrey, Mahatma Gandhi, Dalai Lama  
Quotation I have three: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves 'Who am I to be brillant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear our presence automatically liberates others." -Marianne Williamson

"If we dare to dream, hey no matter what happens it's still a great HOPEFUL version of life." -Lucy K. Beal

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
