You give up your childhood. You miss proms and games and high-school events, and people say it's awful... I say it was a good trade. You miss something but I think I gained more than I lost. Mary Lou Retton.

Another quote by her: Each one of us ha"Each one of us has a fire in our heart for something. It's our goal in life to find it and keep it lit."


Hey you!

Yeah I’m talking to you! Don’t try to ignore me. Don’t look at me that way. Don’t try to walk away. I will always be here staring back at you. It all ends with me. Don’t try to say anything about the parts you hate about me. Don’t say how ugly I am. Don’t try to offend me, by saying how I am a bad person, and don’t even try to change me. You know that you will upset me if you insult me. You can come back crying and look at me in sorrow and disgrace. Just remember that I can help you find out who you really are. So before you leave again, I want you to know that I will always be the one that you have to ask questions to and who you have to understand and live with forever.

I saw an article about a mirror and I decided to write an article about yourself in the mirror. I think it's incredibly important to look at yourself and find out who you really are.

Thank you so much! You have no idea how much this means to me that someone finally commented on a piece of my writing!
