” I’ve lived my life in my own way and I’m here because I have taken the time to find out who I really am…i’ve made mistakes and some bad decisions in my life, but what i did afterwards is what matters..
Life is so short and we have to take it on full speed, otherwise you might as well just pack it in. It cares nothing about you and owes you nothing..YOU have to make the most of it..so CARE about your Life…I mean…do you really have any other choice?…”
“do what you love ~ love what you do..”
