I think there are too many aspects of me and the person that I've become, to somehow be summed up into a few short paragraphs. Nevertheless, I'll attempt to summarize the very simple, yet complex, person that I am (without turning this into my first novel).
I'll be turning 29 this year, and I don't think there's ever been a "simple" moment to exist in my life, as I've always been staring directly into the face of adversity. As a child, these things were very much beyond my own control. As an adult, these things are very much my own damn fault. Either way, for someone whose experienced some of the less perfect sides of life, I believe that I somehow managed to become a better, stronger person than I probably would have, had these things not existed.
I'm almost certain (or at least, I hope) that most who know me personally would likely agree that kindness, understanding and acceptance are almost always found in me. I am a person of values, and I always try to live by those values. I believe that a little bit of respect, compassion and courtesy can go a very long way in life and that we get what we give in life.
Music and writing are two of the most important things to exist in my life (aside from family and friends, and most of all, my son). Without them, I'm almost certain that my sanity would have vanished long ago. Emotions, for me, are better expressed by the motion of writing and the music that I listen to at any given moment, will almost always indicate where my head is at, at any point in time. I'm the furthest thing from perfect, but I'm not reaching for perfection. I only hope to find a peace within myself one day, so that I may become the person I was meant to be in this life. And I'll know that, when this war that is raging between my head and my heart finally come to subside, that I have truly reached complacency. To me, it's those simple things in life that count...the little things that matter most. Welcome to this world that exists within me...
