I Once Was Blind... But Now I... Love?

September 20, 2009
I used to think of how my life would be without love. I pictured myself focused- driven with nothing to stop me from taking the world by storm. I had a dream of seeing myself succeed and never allowing anything to keep me from doing just that. I had the journey all mapped out; I just needed to put one foot in front of the other and no one would ever be able to hold me back.

I used to think of how my life would be without love. I would be respected- revered with my head held high. But I always knew that I would go home to a big house full of nice things, and I would feel empty. I would be lonely. I know now that there is no life worth living if it is void of his love, and if that means that I never accomplish all of my goals, all of my dreams will still have come true.
