Through all the ordeals life throws my way - I'm still in awe of the beauty life brings me. I like to ride my bicycle about 5 miles to the end of this town. Their is a deserted field, an amphitheater, and a lake in the distance. I'll end my biking journey on top of a hill overlooking the lake. I enjoy watching the sun go down, the boats cruising in the distance, the splashing of the water, the jumping of fish, and the breeze as it sings its usual tune. Nothing matters in that moment. No bills, no stress, no... nothing. It's me - enjoying life at this particular moment in time.
Sometimes I'll climb in the trees and remember how it was to be a kid again. I think I'll always be a kid at heart, and will always enjoy things like that.
This is just one thing here to remind me not to give up or give in. Life is hard. It's beat the shit out of me and still does, but through it all I need to remember one thing:
The world is not a cold, dead, place.
