The Wired

Against All Odds

9 April 1980
My journal is pretty much all memememe. Don't like it? Don't read it.

I am just your ordinary twenty-something girl. I graduated college, got a job, got married and bought a house. I live a simple life of working and finding ways to better myself.

I have made many mistakes in my life, but have taken great care to learn from each and every one of them. Sometimes this means repeating mistakes, but the lesson is always learned in the end.

I have a huge heart and a great deal of compassion. I do things on impulse, yet maintain focus on the long term plan.

I am able to enjoy just sitting at home doing "nothing" just as much as a day out shopping or an evening at a museum or art gallery.

I don't drink or smoke and usually stay away from those that do. This is partially because of the way I was raised, and partially because of my own beliefs and values.

I embrace my weaknesses as much as my strengths, as they give me something to learn from and improve upon. What are we if we cannot constantly strive to improve who we are?

I accept those close to me not only for the good inside them, but also for their weaknesses, as each and every person has faults and struggles with their own internal demons. Love is unconditional, and forgiveness is paramount. We need not have religion in order to practice forgiveness and be moral beings. Being a person of no religion does not make us immoral or any less than any other person.

I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and now live in Madison, Wisconsin. I've been through so much in my life, but have decided to learn from it, work through it, and move past it in order to be a better person in the end. The struggles I have endured have made me who I am, and I hope to make the person that I am better with each passing day.

I am currently working on writing a "book" via another journal. It's not going to be kept in that format, but, at least I will get the information written down, just incase my heart does go out on me sooner than later.
