Growth. I believe life is what you make it. I choose to live responsibly and learn from my mistakes. I do my best not to dwell on the past and move foward with my life. I am my own best friend and keep myself company by doing things I like to do that makes me happy.

Bob asked me what I thought of Aimee having a cell phone a few months ago- and I told him my opinion.
