Life lesson..

Life isn't about keeping score.

It's not about how many friends you have.

Or how accepted you are.

Not about if you have plans this weekend or if you are alone.

It isn't about who you're dating, who you used to date, or how many people you've dated, or if you haven't been with anyone at all.

It isn't about who your family is or how much money they have, or what kind of car you drive, or where you were sent to school.

It's not about the clothes you wear, the shoes you have on, or what kind of music you listen to.

It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown.

Or if your skin is too light or too dark.

Not about what grades you get, how smart you are, how smart everybody else thinks you are, or how smart standardized tests say you are.

It's not about what clubs you're in or how good you are at "your" sport.

It's not about representing your whole being on a piece of paper and seeing who will accept the written you.

But, life is about who you love and who you hurt.

It's about who you make happy or unhappy purposefully.

It's about keeping or betraying trust.

It's about friendship, used as a sanctity or a weapon.

It's about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening.

About starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip.

It's about what judgments you pass and why.

And who your judgments are spread to.

It's about who you've ignored with full control and intention.

It's about jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge.

It's about carrying inner hate and love, letting it grow, and spreading it.

But most of all, it's about using your life to touch or poison other people's hearts in such a way that could have never occurred alone.

Only you choose the way those hearts are affected, and those choices are what life's all about.

I miss you already...

The history of the Cabot Tower

The story of The Kyle

Amazing views of Signal Hill

Small boats to ride in

Beaches to walk on

Meadows to run in

Fresh breezes to delight in

Beautiful towns to grow up in

Best friends and

Family to grow old with

Or simply the best fish n' chips around.

All of these things are what makes home "HOME" .....and one thing is for sure..Newfoundland will always hold a large piece of my heart.

Thanks for the amazing visit Newfoundland. I miss you already!
