I spent some time today revisiting my novel. Made a few changes...LOL...I know...so bad. I keep changing things. :-/ It is like I am never going to finish it.

I will though. I am just going to write, write, write...I had to revisit though since I hadn't looked at in so long! I had to make changes to my character profiles. I have decided that I really want to show how my characters grow in the story...

So for the past few days I have been a bit down...for a few reasons...one reason is because the anniversary of my friend's death is only a week away. I still miss him. They say time lessens pain, but it doesn't really...

Perhaps if my last communication with him hadn't been so awful I wouldn't feel this way? I don't know. Anyhow...I've kind of been running on automatic with bursts of small pleasures...cerealy.

I am going to make a few promises to myself.

1. Hold onto my innocence
2. Stand my ground when everyone's giving in
3. Never stop dreaming...and do it with everything I Have
4. Love without holding back
5. Live life with no fear

------------------

1. This particular promise is very important to me. When things are not going well, it is very easy (and perfectly human) to become overly emotional, bitter, and pessimistic. I don't ever want to be like that. I want to always be happy, understanding, and optimistic.

2. I want to be strong enough to stand my ground on something that I truly believe in. I don't want to give up just because the odds look bad...if I still believe in, then I want to have the courage to still stand up for it.

3. This sort of ties back to 1...it is easier it give up on yourself and what you truly desire when things aren't going well. I want to dream the impossible...I want to dream for what seems unattainable and work for it.

4. I don't ever want to think that when I love I didn't do it fully or completely to the best of my ability.

5. Simply...I don't want to live with regrets.

Ok...time for me to go dancing...I haven't been in almost 3 weeks...lol...I am surprised that I am not going through withdrawals :-) Though I suppose the fact that I have been working out pretty hard didn't give me too much opportunity for that.

Awwww! A post so sweet that, if crushed and sprinkled onto Corn Flakes, it would create Frosted Flakes.
