Faith. Trust. They don't come naturally, but as we lay those first bricks, we notice that little by little, a foundation is forming. Eventually we can end up building the most beautiful things with faith and trust.

When you find your path, you must ignore fear. You need to have the courage to risk mistakes. But once you are on that road... run, run, run, and don't stop til you've reached its end.

The fastest runners don't always win the race and the greatest heroes don't always win the battles. But just keep running and fighting if that's all you can do. Never lose faith. And one day, you just might attain all that you hoped for and... more.

Out of the blue, someone can just walk into your life, and make you realize why things never worked out with anyone else. And this is the person you were meant to be with... forever.

I am a Veteran, as are most of my personal friends. A Veteran is someone, who at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America for an amount up to, and including, their life. Regardless of personal or political views, there are way too many people in this country who no longer remember that fact...

Love everyone. Seek out the best that life has to offer and share it with everyone!

Somedays, I feel as if I'm Marc Anthony.... and not because I can sing!

Every time I wrote for her, it was like I was courting her, and she would fall in love with me again. And that's the most wonderful feeling in the world. How many people are ever given that chance? To have someone you love fall in love with you over and over again?

What Is love? When I was growing up on the streets of Tijuana, I dreamed of being in love. My clothes were old, my pants worn, street water passed through my shoes and socks, but the stars still shined through my soul...

Happy? Happy!!!

If you want to see if you can swim, you have to have enough faith and be willing to get your feet wet first...

Whoever survives a test in life, whatever it may be, must tell their story. That is our duty... to share our struggles and how we overcame them.

A man lives by thinking about action. A warrior lives by taking action.

Watching people who you love struggle with their own problems and refuse help, can be like having to watch someone you care about drown before your own eyes... and you are helpless. You can't save them...

A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it's the most painful thing you'll ever have to do and that you've ever done...

To not share a struggle or challenge you overcame is to betray it.

We each have a spark of life inside of us, that can start a fire. You can choose to burn down a room or to brighten it with light.

In the quest for higher education and learning, we must never leave behind... common sense.

I ran into the house, crumpled the pack of cigarettes and cried to myself. I cried for Ricky. I cried because I felt like such a coward.

When faced with any problem, it is important to know where you, yourself, stand... to know what you believe, where you are acting from and why. After that, your options become clear.

Just listening, can sometimes be a great act of kindness!

The perfect time for falling in love is when you are emotionally available, you feel completely self-fulfilled, and free of worries and cares. If you wait for the perfect time to fall in love… it'll never happen.

The Bible talks primarily of two kinds of angels- Cherubim and Seraphim. But there is a third kind of angel. If you ever find yourself troubled, suffering or in despair, God may send you this third type of angel. These angels are called...'friends.

Live isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.....it's about learning to dance in the rain.

Would you save my soul tonight?

We draw our strength from the pains and despairs in which we have been forced to endure. But because of that strength, we shall endure.

Will you save my soul tonight?

There are moments in our life that feel so perfect and so real. These are the moments that we live for. The moments we never want to end...

We swore to take care of each other. To never hurt each other. To love each other unending...

I can be your hero...

I need, therefore I dream. I take risks and sometimes I am hurt. But without risks there is no life. I have a history. We all have a history. I write to struggle against my silence. We all have the basic need and desire to be heard and understood.

I first studied at the "School of Hard Knocks." I was a very good student...

I want my writings to inspire and awaken. I have no interest in spinning silly tales for money. I want to fish deep down into my soul and see what I can pull up, in the belief that once I've gone that far down, everyone will understand that we are all the same, that far down.

When you are struggling with something, look around at everyone else and realize that every single person you see is struggling with something, and to them, it's just as hard as what you're going through. We are all struggling.

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: not pursuing it.

Rare is the man who seeks not only to heal himself but to heal his fellow man.

Ive created a new drink! I'm calling it the Piñata Colada! Its sweet and tasty, but when you wake up the next morning your head feels like its been hitten with a stick.

Pizza... It's what America's having for dinner!

The best teacher is experience. Not by copying the answers off the kid sitting next to you...

I could be illegal!

I have proved to myself again and again, that if I believe in something and set my mind to it, I could actually accomplish it. You might be surprised what YOU are capable of doing. Just believe, try, and don't give up!!!

Let our scars fall into love with each other...

If only for a day, I got to be "Dr. Harris, Neuroscientist" again... It felt nice.

We had a choice... and we became warriors. A warrior cannot complain or regret anything. Our lives are filled with endless challenges. We do not look at challenges as either good or bad. Challenges are simply challenges...

Control Mastery Theory in psychology says that sometimes life is like watching a difficult and tragic movie. We can become too caught up in the action and the pain to let our emotions show. But in the end, if it turns out happy, then our tears can flow. Because then, we know we are safe.

Sometimes, we do not believe in ourselves until someone else reveals that, deep inside of us, something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, love, or any other experience that reveals our human spirit.

Not all scars are visible. Regardless, they are usually painful when you first get them. But with time they might fade or they can remain and become a beautiful reminder... that you survived.

We hardly ever realize it, that we have the ability to cut anything out of our lives, any pain, any misery, any negative person, anytime, in the blink of an eye. We hold the power.

I AM my Brother's Keeper!
