Life - Starting Over

It's incomprehensible and unpredictable
You never know when you will fall in love
You never know when you will get hurt
You never know when you will succeed
You never know when you will fail
You never know what will happen 2seconds from now or 5 years from now

I've been hurt, abandoned, I had my walls come down just to get attacked.
I will admit I'm not saint and have many many faults, but no one in this world is perfect. I noticed how I tend to manipulate words to appear as the victim and have everyone turn against the one who hurt me and how wrong it is.

I tried to change, but my deepest issues are too deep to fill without the right help.

I don't look down on people who have disabilities or mental issues since I used to do volunteer work with people who aren't as lucky as most of us and I have a dear friend of mine who has a disability but it doesn't keep her from swimming faster than me.

Things I used to dread and dislike with a passion I've begun to admire and look more into.

I dread getting my blood drawn, but from what I'm hearing from people it's necessary to get the right health help.

Someday I will be normal like everyone else, but I don't want to dream about it, I have to really work on it in order for myself to improve.

This is the beginning of my long painful journey after I've been hurt to the fullest.
Will you join in my my journey?

Let's Help Japan News

I am sure the biggest topic out there is the huge unfortunate natural disaster that occurred 3/11 in Japan and it has hit everyone around me to the fullest extent. For those of you who are still searching for your loved ones I hope you do find them and my prayers are out there. At times like this racism is the LAST thing any human being wants to attempt! I'm doing my best trying to help out with the bands that I work with whose lead singers are Japanese. She has told me she wants to help as much as she possibly can so from those around her who have helped her out - I refuse to take credit in everything that happens - like the people from Tune in Tokyo and the manager at the Terrace Dig Jelly has two benefit performances this weekend and hopefully many more in the future.

They are both free but will be accepting donations to help and 100% of the profit made will go to the Japanese Red Cross Iwate Prefecture Branch and also directly to the hospitals near the quake area.

What am I doing during all of this??
I will be crocheting headbands and 100% of the profit will go straight to Dig Jelly and Lolita Dark's donation box. They are also under process of being part of a benefit concert in San Diego, More info will come as it is given to us. Instead of the headbands being $12 they will even be on sale for $8 a piece.
You can see the completed projects and ask if any of those are still for sale either via facebook or e-mail.

I will also be baking goods that will be on sale and proceeds will go to their donation box as well. You can e-mail to put in your order if you are either in the San Diego or Los Angeles areas.
