I need a change of perspective. I need to stop being a sponge - absorbing all the petty issues and concerns of this world. I want to laugh more. To love what life has to offer - happy or sad. To want to learn. I want to let go of all the pain, the bitterness, the hatred. I want to say I love my life. I want to look forward to the rising sun instead of the setting sun. I want to be awake instead of wanting to be asleep.
