Close your eyes.
Now imagine all your potential.
Who you could be if this were not the case.
What you would do if that was not stopping you.
Where you would be if you didn't have to be here.
Now imagine all those obstacles.
And find a solution.
To overcome.
Everything
That is stopping you from reaching your potential.
A little reminder that you can achieve anything you want to in this life!

I'm tired I really am
No love for me in hand

I touch my self to fill the void
Even if deep down I am destroyed

I can't fix what's left of me
And I'm down on one knee

The other can't bend is broken
Actually all of me is, broken

I'm just 22! Can you believe it?
Is pain less painful when older?

Am I bringing myself this stupid pain
Am I complaining for no reason in vain?

Does anybody hear me, I cry for help
Alone, alone, alone, I' m angry! Help

I'm having a panic attack every once is a while
And right now is one of those days, again I go wild
For those days that I barely hold myself together

Everyone told her
she could anything
if she just believes

But when she tried something
she was faced with immediate doubt
from everyone

the same everyone that told her
she could do anything
if she just believes

But little do they know
that she knew
believing wasn't enough

she knew
she could do anything
if she worked hard
You have to believe, but its not going to happen if you don't put in the work. It won't be easy, but it is never impossible.

Out of all the things that my grandfather taught me, the advice that I will remember the most is: everything in this world is possible; everything that you can dream about can be achieved.
For you to reach your goals, live your dreams and be successful in life, you have to dedicate yourself and never give up.
It will not be easy to get wherever you want to go but it’s not impossible.
It will take time but you have to be patient and you must believe in yourself.
You cannot be afraid to be different from everyone else, this world seeks change, and if you work hard, you can be that change.
You will have to fight harder as the days go by for what you truly love and care about.
The world needs warriors who would go out their way to please and help others get through life.
You have to be good to others, but be greater to yourself.
You have to love others, but you must love yourself first.
I, personally, have to stop being afraid to love the people that I love.
I don’t know what it feels like to put my heart out there and give it to the ones that love me. I don’t know what it feels like to have my heart broken by the one I thought would never fail me.
But I do know that to love feels good and to be loved feels greater.
I know what it feels like when your best friend chooses something else over you.
I know what it feels like to let him walk away from me, from someone who would go out her way to do anything for him. Just to make him happy and please him.
I know what it feels like to see him everyday,
Walk by him and after everything,
After every advice,
After every smile shared,
After every well-spent time,
After loving each other unconditionally…
I know what it feels like to feel nothing at all.
I know what it feels like to not care at all.
I know what it feels like to be happy and loved again.

the most important thing is;
be humble

humble enough to know that
you're still learning.

humble enough to know that
you must work hard to get something.

humble enough to know that
a simple thing could means everything.

humble enough to know that
you're not better than anybody.

and humble enough to
be kind to everybody.

'the world is sad' we say
but is it? we are sad.
we are broken people,
broken by others who
couldn't think of another
way to hurt themselves.

we pretend that dreaming is
bad, because people who've
accepted the failure are afraid
of others repeating their mistakes.

we act like feelings are bad,
because when you show
your emotions, you're weak and
nobody wants to be seen as weak.

what if we stop pretending?
what if we start dreaming,
working hard to achieve our goals.
what if we stop hiding who we are?

for once, let's stop pretending and
be true to ourselves. dream. fight for
what you need. be the sunshine you
want in your life, and others will
reflect it.

it's time we stopped complaining and started trying.
i think i'm just tired of seeing people give up when they're so close.
Do not give up,
You started for a reason,
Don't stop till you see that accomplished,
Shut your eyes from comparing your life to others,
Shut your ears from negativity,
Press on!
Press on!
Press on!
Even when they think you're mad and naïve press on
Great things don't come easy,
Give yourself some time,
You need to press on!
Press on and inspire someone someday.
Excellence comes with persistence.
Sometimes people won't understand what's upon your heart,.so you'll have to push yourself,motivate yourself.

You must work really hard
To reach the most pristine view
It is all on you

The dream
To be happy while you flow down the stream
Now this dream isn’t just sitting around
It’s up above on top of this monstrous Mound
And I understand I have to work
Even if it’s sometimes a knee ****
Nothing should be handed over to me
Nature obviously agrees
I want to be my best
And pass my test
The goal is to get high
Not just from that green ***** in the sky
But by natural pride
The feeling you get when you’ve really tried
You take that last advance
You’re drowned in excitement you might even dance
You feel thump-thump
Your heart filled with adrenaline just before a ski jump
You know deserve it
Because of the hours you’ve spent in the pit
Even if you lost your goal
You still gained some heart and soul
But eventually you’ll realize it’s worth the time
So you can keep up improving your prime.
