I dove into life/
And the ripples effected/
Ever feel like the little kid sitting on the side of the pool to scared to jump into the water because its to cool. Not realizing that once you get in your body would adjust and begin to feel good. I have found that life is the same way. For years i was that kid, and in some ways I still am, but unlike a lot of people every now and then I jump my ass in the water.
One of the blessings I have always had in life were those type of mentors that believe in pushing you in the pool (life). They did not mind pushing me in because they knew they had the ability to jump in and save me if I began to drown. They also knew that I had the skill to swim, i just needed that rude nudge to get me in the water.
Today i would like to personally thank all those that pushed and then taught me to dive into life. those brave masters that demonstrated and then forced me to learn the fact that "with nothing ventured nothing gained", with out there push i would be sitting on the side of the pool (life) to scared to try the water. so I want to send shouts out to my elders that forced me to share what I know, and do the right thing. I want to thank my peers that achieved and dared me to do the same,and most importantly thank those students that force me to live and become what I speak. I have been molded and shaped in the crucible of your love and sometimes anger. I can truly say because of you the ripples of my dives will touch eternity. now I hope and pray I have done the same for some of you out there.
Peace and 1hunidyears
