Truly living is being honest with your dark side. Knowing who you are amongst the dirty dark times. Being able to laugh at circumstance.

50. Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
Life has a hand in it for my set of circumstance. Not everything is as clear cut as you’d like this question to be. I make decisions for me. I take others opinions into consideration. Who wouldn’t? Life is about living, and living with those you love means sharing, giving, exchanging and exploring. I’ve got a strong will, I’m not a door mat, but sometimes you go with others ideas because they’re not what you would ever have thought up and they are BRILLIANT!
