I don’t think there’s anything I will change if i’m asked to change anything right now, not even any of my mistakes. We need to fall to be able to rise again but then falling isn’t always pleasurable. It takes courage to stand after a fall. Learning to give thank to God after any fall makes the difference. Nothing is a mistake, every end leads to a new start.
There were a lot of times I stumbled, crashed and just didn’t want to go on. There were also times that i was convinced that everything is over but some how I found the strength to go on. I am grateful for the sun because it made me appreciate the rain. I am grateful for every season of abundance because it made me appreciate the times I had nothing. I am grateful for the wrong ones for they made me appreciate the wrong ones.
I am grateful for the pain and everything that made me break because they made me realize how strong i am. Right now I am filled with so much love and no bitterness. No regrets either. I am grateful for the friends in my life right now, their undying love and support has always held me together.

The first step to getting what you want is to be courageous enough to get rid of what you don’t want. Learning to smile through anything can be the hardest thing to do but it surely lightens the burdens and weights. I may not know where I am going to what or what lies ahead of me but I am on my way and I am smiling through it all.
