Motivation

Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, it’s up to you.

It’s reached that point of year where all i want to do is give up,

but I don’t! I just have to keep pushing forward because school is almost up.

And if I can do it, then I certainly know that you can do it!

I wouldn’t mind

Forever is a long time

But I wouldn’t mind spending it by your side

Carefully we’ll place our destiny

You came and you took this heart, and set it free

Every word you write or sing is so warm to me, so warm to me

I’m torn, I’m torn to be right where you are.

Genius hour

At first my project was working with homeless people and getting to know their stories because let’s be honest we all have struggles every once in awhile. But after talking to a few of them, it didn’t really end well. A lot of them were ungrateful with what they got and didn’t really care to tell me their story so that made me decide to change my idea to the way we think.

Why do kids think differently than all of us? In the research that I did, I found that kids haven’t had enough experiences to react certain ways. Because adults have been through more they use those experiences to help with their decision thinking process.

#32

“This.” He sighed, sweeping his arms through the air. “This is what ignorance does.” She didn’t believe him until just then, but there was nothing left she could say or do to make anything better. How could he be so willing to hurt her when all he did was love her. She continued to ignore him not realizing that it was pushing him closer and closer to his breaking point. He signed and then said in a whisper “I really don’t want to do this. But I have no choice.” He shook his head and stated to walk away after a minute of silence. “Wait, come back please. You can’t just leave me like this.” She began crying knowing that he was gone. Upset with everything that she had done. But that was it, that was the last memory she had of him. Wishing she could take everything back but she had to bring herself back to reality. Sitting up straight against his graves tomb stone and saying her final goodbye as she knew it was her time to go, hopefully that she would soon see him.

17 things I’ve learned throughout my life

1: People will promise to never leave you. They will. It’s okay to be sad when they do.

2: It is always okay to cry. Always. Find a bathroom, bury your face in your pillow, and let it out. Cry in the shower. Cry in the car. Cry when you need too.

3: Boys will flirt with you for a while and then ignore you. Then, they will flirt with you some more. It will be confusing. You have every right to stop putting up with it.

4: Pay attention to what people say when they’re angry. When you make up and they tell you they didn’t mean any of it, know that they did. Also know that they wish they didn’t. forgive them.

5: Never pretend to be someone you’re not. If you don’t like tea and classic novels, don’t act like you do to impress people. If you don’t want to wear leather jackets and combat boots, don’t wear them to please someone else.

6: People will be mean to you; they will spread lies, call you names, and talk about you behind your back. Eventually you will realize that it is petty and stupid and not worth your time. You’ll be right. move on with your life.

7: Your friends will not always be there for you. When you really need to talk, they will sometimes not want to hear it. That’s okay. Take a deep breath and remember all the times you felt the same way. Exhale.

8: You will wait and wait and wait and wait for your first kill and your first date and your first relationship. The anticipation will kill you. You will keep trying to find the right person in everyone that you meet. Relax. There’s no rush. The best things happen unplanned.

9: Enjoy being young. Love that everything is spontaneous. As you get older, things become more and more scheduled out. Embrace the fact that you aren’t there yet.

10: Tell people how you feel. It will be terrifying in some cases and gratifying in others. It will create relationships and ruin them. But speak your mind, even if your voice shakes, because your thoughts may never otherwise be heard.

11: Sleep. If you go to bed late, sleep in. If you’re still tired when you wake up, go back to bed. If you cant stay awake during the day, take a nap. Sleeping is a foolproof way of getting rid of your problems for a little while. Utilize it.

12: Talk to people. Talk to your sister about the guy she likes. Talk to your mom about her childhood. Talk to your dad about his favorite books. Talk to your grandparents about their families. Talk to your friends, talk to your pets, talk to the cute waitress at the restaurant. Learn things from them. Be inspired.

13: Always bring a sweater. Even if you think it won’t be cold.

!4: Try new things. Eat a new food, try a new kind of juice, switch up the way you dress. You never know what you might end up loving, Life can get boring. Mix it up a bit.

15: Take care of yourself. Wash your hair with that good smelling soap you love. Eat fruits and vegetables. Drink lots of water. Go for long walks in pretty parks.

16: School is important. Try your hardest. If you don’t get something, ask for help. Do your homework. show your teachers that you’re willing to work hard, and when it comes time to apply to colleges, you’ll be glad you did.

17: There will always be someone prettier, smarter, funnier, or more popular than you. The beauty of it is that it isn’t a competition.

Dreams

I have a lot of dreams. Some realistic, some out the wazoo.

..but the fact that I haven’t given up on any of them means the most to me.

My current dream is college, and being able to pay for it.

Debt free, yeah that’s right, debt free.

Then while I’m in college get my PhD.

I want to be able to pay for my family when that time comes,

I want them to succeed as well.

But the only way to survive is with money these days.

Another one of my big dreams is being able to travel the world.

Going from one inch of the world to the last inch.

I’m sure that’s everyone’s dream though but to me,

it’s way more than a dream. I’m gonna make it a reality.

Adversity

We’ve all let adversity get the best of us at some point in our lives. We can do two things with that, learn to accept it and live with it, or choose to dwell on it. But what we choose is up to us.

Moving to Eagle Mountain was hard for me. Going to a brand new school where everyone already has their group of friends organized, and feeling like you’re out of place. Yeah, I’ve been there and I’ve done that. That was the hardest thing for me to do, grasp the concept that sometimes new is okay. But through dealing with that, I learned to make new friends and learned new things and for that I’m stronger then ever.

Fears

People don’t understand why people have some fears.

The fear of failing.

The fear of the dark.

But for me,

it’s not like that.

My fear is beyond most fears.

The fear of tall people.

I’m not very short, just about 5’5″.

 But the thought of anyone over the height of 6 foot makes me feel over whelmed.

I feel small.

Shortly after, I feel like I can’t breathe.

Why this happens, I don’t know.

It would make things a lot easier in life if I did,

but not even I have all of the answers.

I Am You as You are I

I Am You as You are I

I begin and end

With the use of this state of mind

I am you as you are I

Potential is a given

Confidence rearranges

I feel myself

There is wealth

I read my feelings and put them on the empty pages of whiteness

I thank the creator above for the gifts I’ve been given

For the energy that we swim in

The ability to give and be given

I dive in

I feel you through myself

We both have wealth

Your existence gives me the ability to be me and mine does the same in return

We work together as one

Now there is meaning to I am you as you are I

 We telepathize every second with every breath

There is energy that does not rest

There are mirrors in our chest

We all reflect

When we first see each other

We are strangers at our best before we get to know the rest

There is a mirror in everyone

Hopefully they are not square

Because we do not need the corners keeping us from our potential

Did I not mention to you that potential is a given

So give in

We need a lot of space so soar through the mirror more

So open yourself and explore

Sorry if I make it hard to focus your image in my glass

Though I own the mirror to your image

You are your own creator

With that beautiful soul behind those beautiful eyes

You’ve created a world

That should not be a surprise

Soon you will see you do not need mirrors to believe

We share the same existence

I am like your limb not the soul beneath your eyes

I am apart of your existence and that’s it

I am you as you are I

The mirrors were just a disguise that kept us blind

In this beautiful illusion

I am in your space as you are in mine

We are a world so divine

You are life and so am I

Though we are not intertwined

I am you as you are I

Keep reflecting that’s why

India Hines:

Not a well know poet.

..Actually this is the only poem that she has ever written.

That makes her interesting enough as it is.

The way her words flow and just make sense is amazing,

and that’s why I love this poem.

I like this poem because it’s saying that we are all the same.

We shouldn’t treat people differently.

I love the line that reads

“Hopefully they are not square

Because we do not need the corners keeping us from our potential”

We all have our own potential so don’t waste it.

Especially don’t waste it on being rude to someone just to make you feel better.
