I've known some extraordinary people in my life and many of them were cases in point. I thank God for giving me the overall insight to realize nothing is written in stone until we die, right? As long as we are still alive and still human, we have the capacity within us to change. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. That is how the controlling beings in our populated world like to keep others under their *emotional thumb*. It simply doesn't have to be so. You are the Master of Your Own Universe. So act like it.

I mean, where the heck would I be without all of my wonderful, crazy friends?
