Life has many challenges, it’s really up to the individual to decide what challenges they want to take on. The challenge I’m on right now primarily is making myself a better and happier person. I’m seeing the small changes and it’s giving me hope that I’ll become a more likable person.

I know that things happen, but this has happened to me way too frequently in the past, and it’s definitely going to come back to bite me in the butt. And the worst part is I don’t have a set plan when this happens. No one does. And it happens at usually the worst time, too. Shit like this always discourages me from ever wanting to shoot anything.
