I am in control of my life by the right choices that I make now. Even making mistakes on the wrong track, I’m still headed in the right direction. While stumbling and bumbling through life, I’m still moving correctly. When I encounter a bad situation, I remind myself of the words I was given during my journey: ‘Experience is the best teacher but a fool will learn from no other’ (Benjamin Franklin).

I have, while physically stationed in one spot, been moving diligently. I learned quickly that if I remain completely still mentally, physically and spiritually, I will digress. In other words if I stay still like a pool of water, I will dry up and die. Always keep your mind, body and soul moving in a positive direction.
