It’s been a wild ride. I started this blog 4 years ago. I’ve made some great friends, and it’s led me to meet some very awesome, interesting people. Hopefully all those who have asked for my advice have gotten what they came for. You’ve gotten to see me in the purest form, and I hope you like what you’ve seen. This is me closing a chapter in my life. I have many plans in the future. I’d like to find a wife and settle down. Start a family. I’m going back to school, and hopefully when I’m out of the Army, I can start my dream job in law enforcement. Everything that happens from now on that’s not on that list will hopefully be a pleasant surprise.Someone once asked me “What are you most afraid of?” and it took a long time to come up with what I feel like is the right answer. But I sit here tonight, and I know the right answer: I hope that on the day I stand before the Almighty, and he asks me why I should enter the Kingdom of Heaven, I can tell him that somewhere, at some point in life, I was able to change someone for the better. That I made a great impact in someone’s life. That without me, they wouldn’t be where they are. Yes, that might be a bit selfish of me. But I’m terrified of leaving this Earth having not made an impact for the better.
I’d like to leave you all with quotes that I’ve learned to live by:
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." -John 15:13
"Be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle" -Ian Maclaren
"Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value." -Albert Einstein
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover." -Mark Twain
"The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." -Mark Twain
It’s been fun my friends. I hope your lives see much prosperity and happiness in all of your days. May the Force be with you. Always.
