Remember that when you're all alone and all hope seems gone, when that moment comes where you want to break, I want you to remember that life goes on but you chose how. That you have a choice...chose to live life. Dreams will never come true by themselves, they also wont surface without ambition and passion. Understand that after you've been depressed, you will appreciatte true happiness so much more and you'll know not to throw it away. The world is a wonderful place, but the people on it are selfish and simple minded.

So know like always you have a choice. Do you lift yourself up and do somethng, or do you end up looking like the rest? I believe that things are what you make of them. A pile of wood can easily be crushed and burned. But with passion and ambition you can build a sculpture that will amaze the world. It can still easily be burnt, but its your job to protect it. This is life, and you only have a certain amount of time to live it. Every second that passes is a chance to make a choice that can change everything...everything.

I know its hard, but do yourself a favour and just start at it. You cant just be at the finish, you have to run, jump the hurdles and race for it. But before that you need to practice and  prepare. If you start with these two the rest will happen alot easier. There will always be competitors, people who trained harder and run faster. But dont let this get you down. It could turn out that the race, the event and the pleasure of meeting all the competitors could be the biggest reward. Anything could happen. Its your choice.
Whenever you need some inspiration...

This is amazing, you did a wonderful job :)

It's so true, too, once you get out of depression, which WILL happen, you appreciate happiness that much more. And really, just keep going with your goals and dreams, don't compare yourself to others. You're great in your own way, not their way.

I can't believe that I haven't commented on this.

I favorited this a while ago and I always look to it for inspiration whenever I need some because, honestly, what you have here is pure magic.

It always effects me in a way that picks me up when I need it most, every single time I re-read it.

Hey thank you for putting this up, I've been feeling pretty crappy lately, what with deploying to Afghanistan next month and being out on my own for the first time, and so far from home!
This helped. :) Thanks.

Wow. You really know how to use the right words and form them into something that really means something. When I started reading it, I figured it would be just kind of put together like some things I see people write. But you really seem to put thought into it. I love the very first sentence. Especially the last part of it.

" goes on but you chose how."

That really IS inspirational. Its really sad how people put themselves down about things all the time. Everyone does it, including myself. We just don't realize that we can do things correctly and well if we put the effort into it. No one said grasping onto a goal was going to be easy. Sometimes it looks easy and yeah maybe sometimes for other people it is easy. Everyone has a different mind so thus people are at different points in their goals. A lot of the things you said were, well, true. Practice and prepare. It sounds so much like something you would hear at school(I hear it a lot) and people just say "Yeah yeah, what else is new?" But it really does help.

Awesome work!
