there is power in:

self control
bighting your tongue

i've been trying to do these things and no matter how bad things get i'm determined to keep on. stooping to immature levels was never an option and will never be an option for me. i've never had so much peace in my life before and i'm thankful because not many people can say that. i sincerely and truly believe that you cannot have true peace in your life if you are constantly choosing to hurt & take reign of things out of your control. also including, the need to debilitate others just to make yourself feel better. i must admit that in the past i've chosen that route and yes, it felt good, but at the end of the day, what kind of woman does that make me?

"A political victory, a rise in rents, the recovery of your sick, or return of your absent friend, or some other quite external event, raises your spirits, and you think good days are preparing for you. Do not believe it. Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
