" I feel like my wings are finally coming back. They were broken, and there was a point where I thought I was confined to this earth. But I feel like they're back now. And I'm excited to fly again. And sure, there are going to be bad and tough times. I can easily see them now but that's not a reason to stay on the ground. Everyone has to fall sometime but no matter how long it takes you, you eventually get tired of dragging your feet through the mud, and you get up and find your wings have healed and they ache to fly again. So I'll fly, I'll fall, I'll get back up, and I'll live."

I wrote this after a long depression that nearly took my life, but with the help of my friends, I got through it and this was the result. This is my new mindset and I hope this will help others through their hard times in life.

" If not pure of body, be pure of mind. If not pure of mind, be strong of mind. If not strong of mind, have the courage of your convictions If you have not the courage of your convictions, then choose not to act or speak. If you cannot do any of these, at least be honest; and by doing so, be pure of mind."

" I am not an expert to comment on life; I am a heart that can feel and express the emotions. I am not a good composer but only a wind that vibrates the musical notes. I am not a celebrity or a millionaire to be honored; I am just a child who wanted to live each and every moment of my LIFE."

" When was the last time you asked a question like this: "Why did this happen to me?" or "I don't understand why." Please remember, it's not what happens to us but the meaning we associate with the circumstances that will determine whether we will be successful and happy or the opposite. In all circumstances, reach for the better thoughts regardless of how hard it my be at first. Look for the better meaning and the positive aspect in all things. Use your circumstances always as a way to grow as a person and evolve to your greatest potential."

" When hardship and depression surround you, you may see friends and family leaving, moving away from you. When this happens, just wave goodbye; for life begins with a struggle but in the end it produces a victorious being. You are just passing through a dark valley; you will make it!"

" In order to succeed in life you must fail. In order to fail in life you must stop learning and quit growing. Both good and bad situations have a positive insight, only if you analyze it and are open. Be patient and be still heart. Love life, live true and drown in happiness."

I had my first drunk at the age of 13 and by 15 was in my first rehab and a mental institution right after that. I dropped out of school at this time because there was no point. As soon as I turned 18, it was jails. On March 29, 2009 suicide was my only solution to my problem. That was my last drink. I'm in a program that only works if you have a higher power, are positive, rigorously honest, are of service to others, and find good and growth out of what once was hell, hopelessness, and insanity. You have to grow as a person constantly. I've always been positive in all things except myself, because I felt that there was nothing positive about me. Now that I am sober, I have my self-respect back and I have learned to not only like myself but to love myself. I have something that I've never had before, hope for the future. Hope mountain; moving motivator. I'm going to college in the fall! The first in my family! Out of all bad there comes a good if you strive to find it. All of trials and tribulation have made me the person I am today. And for that and God I am thankful.

" Monitor your thoughts. Making a bad judgment does not necessarily make anyone a fool. Be quick to forgive yourself as well as others... release the past. Don't allow negative thoughts to take up space in your head where positive seeds could grow."

" The moment you feel neglected by people, think twice. There are a lot of other people who need you and you need too. The world is a vast environment of people wherein a simple "hi" and "hello" would make a difference. Get up and explore. Just continue and let the world feel your warmth and love."
