I can't give up now.
Every day, I emerge a champion by conquering my daily objectives. I am unstoppable. I am fearless. I am a human being, born with the conscience, the will, and the intellect to obliterate objectives and enemies alike.
I am above ordinary man, but never beneath my fellow comrades. My values are what I hold sacred. These hands will build my will, future, and testament. Within myself, I hold the greatest glory: the appreciation of the present, the blessing of life, the truth of imminent change, the wisdom that even the greatest things begin with a single step, and that a closed mouth does not get fed.
Ignorance, my greatest weakness, is my greatest strength, for without it, knowledge would be meaningless, and questions and pleas that could strengthen me would remain unanswered. Relationships would cease to exist if it were not for ignorance; curiosity, the sole reason for inquiry, would never see the light of day. There is something new every day, each and every time. Thus, I will never know enough and have no shame for my ignorance.
I am powerful, not because of my achievements, but because I can never stop achieving. My experiences, my friends, and my family have made me into what I am today, and for that, I am forever grateful.
I’ve got this chronic “I don’t know what makes me happy anymore” feeling that hits me every so often. “It’s a lack of engagement”, my professor once told me. My psychiatrist remarked my slight depression, which makes it legitimate, I suppose. I question what makes me happy because i tend to forget what it is. I think I’ve found something though: hope.
