Self in a Bag
"I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel his pleasure." All of us like to feel that we are in some way unique.

I give great advice to friends and peers encouraging them to be more than amazing making the best of themselves. When people look at me, I hope they see nothing less than an amazing, beautiful, young lady with big dreams. My free spirit allows me to remove myself of any situation and just live in that moment until it ends.

As I am a human and more often than not, frustration will get me. However, tomorrow morning, I have to make sure to pick up the puzzle I threw away from frustration and continue...
