i am dillon; a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, and an American Airman. i am motivated, meticulous, and most of all, a man. i'm far from perfect, but i confide in the things i do. however, not so much in the people around me. but i look at it this way, i am still alive so everything is going to be okay. i have made and will continue to make right and wrong decisions all my life, but from as much experience i have gained in my early years, i will use every bit of it as a lesson learned and look at nothing as a regret. i stay positive throughout everyday of my life and in the future i'll have something great to look back on. i want an education for myself as well as others and want nothing more, but for everyone to succeed. nowadays, few people choose to go down a good path, but maybe it is just taking them longer to get a grasp on things. only those who do nothing can go through life and never make a mistake. i have learned that making the same mistake twice is absolutely unforgivable. admittedly, i am not the brightest star in the universe and with repetition and some pain, i learned this valuable lesson and today strive to learn from my mistakes and never, ever make the same one twice. i have never truly understood why it is so hard to learn from our mistakes. granted, i hate to make mistakes but when one is made, i am the first to acknowledge it and accept full responsibility. perhaps this is because of my self-discipline and early experience, but it is also the logical thing to do. if we cannot acknowledge our mistakes with an absolute open mind understand how they occur we are destined to repeat them over and over again. "life is too short to be wasted on recurring mistakes." that is a message i would like to express to you.
