My So Called Life - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Embrace life -- both the sweet days and the bitter...embrace the joy and the sadness...the successes and the defeats -- for all of these things, both good and bad, have made you who you are.

A Look Upon Past Relationships - Who Really Knows The Future

Have you ever just sat back and pondered all of the past relationships that you have had. For some of us that may be a pretty short list...for others, the list might be pretty extensive. Either way is just as valid as the other.

Little experience is no worse than too much experience.

One makes you nervous about the future and the other can make you jaded about the past!

But through it all I think a lesson is learned through each trial and through each experience.

That is what I am learning day after day, month after month. With every time I am stood up, with every first date, with every first kiss, with every new budding romance, there is something to learn and potentially something to be saddened about.

But what would be truly sad...would be for me or anyone else to go through the experience and learned nothing. The only true regret is not to have lost and it is not to have never loved. I believe the only true regret is to not learn all that life has to offer as it prepares you for life and love.

Because you never know when either one of them will come to an end!

I believe that no matter how far in the past they may be, there is one person who will come to mind above all others. There is always that one special person who keeps a little piece of your heart even after they are gone. I celebrate that little piece because it helps make me who I am today.

Here's to you Brock!

    True Matt, and I think alot of those experiences, good and bad, all lead up to learning how to love yourself first.

    (sure it sounds trite but its still painfully true :))

    Thanks Nettie - i agree - sometimes taking the good from life completely depends on your perspective and how you look at the situation!
