take into account.

At some point in your life..
You need to realize that only your opinion matters.
Not all this wishy-wasy "I've got the greatest advice for you" nonsense.
You are you.
Only surround yourself with the people cheering for you.
The second you let people in your head and bring you down,
you lose a piece of you. 
A piece that is not easily won back.
You know your aspirations, and wildest dreams.
Don't let someone tell you, you can't.
If I could count how many times in my life someone has tried to
"re-route" my life.. aka. telling me I'm not good enough,
and I need to follow a different path.. 
it would be far too many.
And for some time I listened.. and I've lost time that will have to be made up.
But here I am, on my own two feet, READY.
Ready to start crossing of my bucket list, ready to learn, ready to love,
Ready to be who I'm meant to be.
I am willing to risk going too far,
to the ends of the earth to follow my dreams.
Maybe that's crazy,
and maybe I'll fall.
I sure have before,
but from what I know now, I won't let myself be down long.
I will make my life something I am proud of.
Cheers to growing up, and figuring life out.
"I know it seems hard sometimes, but remember one thing.
Through every dark night, there's a bright day after that.
So no matter how hard it gets, stick your chest out, keep ya head up,
And handle it." -- Tupac.
