"Have patience—wait, but do not sit idle; work while you are waiting; smile while you are wearied with monotony; be firm while everything around you is being shaken; be joyous while the ugly face of despair grins at you; speak aloud while the malevolent forces of the nether world try to crush your mind; be valiant and courageous while men all around you are cringing with fear and cowardice."

i just like to give this life some meaning. & i strive to be the best i can be-nicer, smarter, stronger.

we all have our problems. but that's one of life's best qualities. balance.
