My goal in life...

I realized something...I am a pretty open person about what goes on in my life, however I am more hesitant to share particular things about myself for fear of someone catching onto who I am...lol...perhaps I am afraid for people to discover the true me.

One of my goals in life (aside from being obscenely wealthy, comfortable, and having that gorgeous ring that I designed before this entry) is to be a positive influence on everyone I may come in contact with, no matter how brief. Why? Simply, because I would like to think that something that I may have said or done will always live within that person as long as s/he live. Perhaps I was able to shed some light onto the situation that s/he had not seen before, or perhaps something I said or did may have touched close to home that would make that other person grow or understand who s/he is better or understand the world. I do not know why I have always had this need...this is a goal that will continue until my last dying breath. Perhaps in a way...I want to be able to give something of myself to those I meet.

PS
I wanted to email you this morning because I had something to ask, but I seemed to have misplaced your email. Do you mind sending it to me again? hehe, sorry.

"I expect to pass through this world but once;
any good thing therefore that I can do, or any
kindness that I can show to any fellow-creature,
let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again."

Beautiful....

You must let the truth set you free. I know exactly what you are talking about when you speak about being honest, but not really 'open' honest about those things you may think reveil too much of your heart and/or hurt others.

My journal is called 200% proof because I am 100% honest. I don't care who I hurt or how much I let people know about me, because, even though I may be blunt to an offensive fault, at least I can say that I alwats tell people everything and I do not lie.

Just be yourself, because no one else can.
