Thoughts From A Balcony
What if you were in a position where you could lose everything you had spent you entire life working for? What if you were just one test away from losing your future that you spent your entire life working for? What if? If you were, what would you do? How would you react? Would you sit back and sulk and say ‘oh poor me I don’t know what to do’? Would you attack your...
How does it feel to know you can never take any of it back? That for the rest of...– Karen Roe (via jconnormorgan)
A humble person, in my opinion, is a strong person. A humble person is a good person. Being humble is one of the most attractive traits a human being can have. It is always good to have humbling moments every once in a while; and today, I had one. My friend hosting this amazing event called the Shootout for Soldiers that benefited the Wounded Warrior project benefiting wounded soldiers. The...

captaincmorgan: No, no human is perfect. People should not be looking for a perfect person. BUT, you should look for someone who is perfect to and for you. That person exists and is not as far away as you think. What I mean when I say someone is perfect to and for you is; yeah, that person will have flaws and…

If someone means something to you,
Let them know. You don’t have to go around every day and say it but every once in a while, remind them that they are important to you, but don’t over do it. Everyone likes to be told they mean something to someone, so don’t let the important people in your life go unrecognized or unappreciated.
Value all of the adults who impact your life
Almost every adult in your life is there to try to help you become a better person, therefore you should appreciate them, no matter how hard it is to see how they are helping you. Wether it be a teacher, coach, parent, relative etc. listen to what they have to say because they have probably been in your shoes before and can tell you how to do better. If you feel like you don’t need to...
Utilize the people you have around you
After going through a Marine training program ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTtCQfuyj4s ) in a blizzard, and having to pass a run test i never thought imaginable, i have learned that your friends, teammates, and family are there for a reason. They are there for more than just to love you and tell you everything will be alright. The most important thing I took from that program was to keep...
It’s the name of the game. Without it, nothing would ever get accomplished. Say that you do poorly at something in life…a test or an athletic competition; if you just sit there and sulk about it then you won’t get any better or be able to learn from your mistakes. Then, and only then, was this failure. Because without challenges in life, without obstacles to knock you down,...
Everyday needs to be progression because if it isn’t… then nothing will change. Reach out and talk to someone you trust, it only can get better sometimes.

You have gone through a lot, but this is just the beginning. You have so much more to go through that you can not be content with “just getting though it” or “doing what it takes to get by” anymore. These are the times where you look at yourself and say to yourself that you need to take this and everything in the future head on as fast as you can while still being smart....

last night was one of the most fun nights i have had in a while. I finally came back to drink with the boys and it felt great. but at the same time last night really brought me back down off my high horse. It made me realize that I need to go home. All of my friends are going home this week and next week while im stuck here till mid-May and I have no weekends off. Yeah sure my family is coming...
Today was one of the greatest days of my life. My number one school choice was Middlebury and I missed it by one freakin spot. Had I been just a little more athletic or maybe just better grades I would have achieved my goal of going there. But I didn’t in the end so I ended up here at Hamilton. But I had the chance today to prove to that coach that he made the wrong choice, and I did...
