What Inspires Me

Oddly enough rejection inspires me, I love it when others tell me I’m incapable of doing something. This inspires me to prove them wrong it gives me a challenge that betters me as an individual. It doesn't matter how far you fall it's about the changes and the journey you make to redeem yourself and climb to the top.

 A book that moved me

Surprisingly a book that moved me was Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. Despite the guts and gore of a zombie thrill, Warm Bodies really focused on the ethical issue of how our society is so materialistic, how everyone should enjoy each other's presence even if they're strangers. How we should respect and learn about other individuals before we denounce them with unpractical and unfair reasoning. This book opened my eyes and made me realize how text savvy, if you will the 'new age' generation is. How life's beauty is being thrown away, how our generation is so caught up in 'drama' or 'things that matter.'

 Likes

I like a variety of things. I adore to be thrown in brain boggling situations. I like to be the outstretched hand to take. I like to encourage others and be their foundation. Most importantly I like to be the optimistic light in a pessimist world.

Best Advice

The most spectacular, best advice I have ever acquired is 'If there's a will there's a way.' To never take no for an answer. To keep your mind and options open, take every opportunity. To be in control, and have the power to change your life for the better. To always keep a smile, even when you truly have a frown.
