Kanye West | Street Lights The Destination
Regardless of what stage we are in our life, we all dream and have ambitions. The journey we take to pursue greatness and happiness is never easy, but in the end we are rewarded. Along the way you will encounter many challenges and obstacles, and each time you are going to have to fight to continue your journey. The journey will take a lot of time and energy, and you may be so focused on the...
Kina Grannis | Cambridge The Time
Every relationship has an end, and that end comes when the time is right. Just like when a relationship begins, when one comes to an end it comes back to timing. We don’t look forward for this time to come, but we also know that it is inevitable. As time moves forward, so do we. Change happens, and someone we once needed and wanted in our lives is no longer what we need. That’s when...

For most, this person will leave your life about as fast as they came into it. Then there are a few who get lucky and the first stays for a lifetime. They say you never forget your first love, and the truth is you never really do. You may...
50 Cent ft. Dr. Dre & Alicia Keys | New Day ...
As people, we like to measure things. Whether it is the time it takes to get somewhere, how far one place is to another, or the marks we get in school compared to the marks of our peers. Our entire lives are spent comparing ourselves with others, instead of taking a critical look at ourselves and seeing how we can improve upon what we have already been given. This begins when we stop trying to...
