Inspiration

I Choose to live by choice, not by chance; to make changes, not excuses; to be motivated, not manipulated; to be useful, not used; to excel, not compete. I choose self-esteem, not self pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinion of others.

ready...set...

  1. So...just to clarify: listening to the random opinions of others is wrong? What about listening to the advice of others? My friend is telling me to jump off a 50K bridge...and can I count postings to the blog as part of my word count for NaNo?

  2. All joking aside, here's mine:
    Unsubdued by Samuel E. Kiser

    I have hoped, I have planned, I have striven,
    To the will I have added the deed;
    The best that was in me I've given,
    I have prayed, but the gods would not heed.

    I have dared and reached only disaster,
    I have battled and broken my lance;
    I am bruised by a pitiless master
    That the weak and the timid call Chance.

    I am old, I am bent, I am cheated
    Of all that Youth urged me to win;
    But name me not with the defeated,
    Tomorrow again, I begin.
