If you don’t fail at something – you are not even trying…

To get something you don’t have – you need to do something you never did.

NOTHING is worth having without risk.

Fall back on something? I don’t want to fall back on anything except for my faith. I want to fall forward so that I can see what I am hitting…

- Denzel Washington,  2011  UPenn Commencement Speech

 

There is something to be said about taking risks and actually putting yourself out there.

I did once.

It is an incredibly scary and frightening experience. But in the end, I became Wiser. Stronger. Invincible. 

I have this little Lady Gaga quote on my computer’s desktop… its says:

Whether you are gay, straight, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, you are black, you are white, you are Islam, Muslim, whatever the fuck you are, you don’t know how free you will feel, how you will fly so fucking far above the rest once you stop caring what people thing about you.

At this point in my life – I don’t give a shit. I am ready to fall forward.
