Life Philosophy

You don’t know anything except that you don’t know everything.
Also, you can do anything you think you can. Life has been given to you. all that is required in return is the knowledge and implementation of a little thing I like to call PERSPECTIVE =)

I believe that every day is in a way a new day of birth for each of us, and that we can’t wait for the right day, or the right time. We have to make it the right time when we will it to be, or it will never be.

I am...

I am a child of this wonderfully unknowable expanse we call the universe, and my life revolves around moving up, moving forward, falling down and getting up.
