I lived in Atlanta most my life. I have always been a really happy kid. I am what I like to call a product of my situation and adapt to the scene at hand. I have always had a since of independence even when I was young I use to camp alone. I love life and think that simplicity is the key even if it is hard to practice. My quote I made up on my hike to Canada was "control nothing and nothing can control you." I think that if there is always a positive and a negative to any situation then why would one not focus on the positive. I think our lives are help shaped by our thoughts and out looks; therefore, I would like to say that I am "unipolor" and am stuck in happiness. I wake up wanting to be the best I can be which I fall short of all the time, but I think that the only moment we have is now. I can't let my past mistakes hold me down. I love learning about life inside and outside me. I want to learn how to live in perfect balance with the world and want to teach and learn from all things. There is a message in everything and I want to learn it all. By searching for all the teachers out there I hope I am able to give back all that I take in. I hope to always keep an open mind. I like to say thoughts cause paralysis by analyses and I want to live a life of doing.
