Life Philosophy

I’ve come to live life with karma in mind. I do good things for other people as often as I can. I talk to people because I like to meet new people, or at least make them feel not so alone for the time we’re talking. I believe that you should do good things. I don’t affiliate with any religion. I believe everything happens for a reason and it all teaches you something. The most horrible parts of my my life happened for a reason and transformed me into the person I am today, good or bad (mostly good). I know that what goes around doesn’t always come around, that karma can be random in ways. Good doesn’t always win the fight against evil. So all I can do is live my life with a set of morals and values I believe in and try to better the world one tiny piece at a time.

I am...

I’m a lot of things. A writer mainly. A thinker. A smoker. An open-minded person. I try to act natural and be me. I am me.
