Thoughts to ponder: Don’t wait for things to get easier, simpler or better. Life will always be complicated. Learn to be happy right now, otherwise you will run out of time.
Another thought: I’m a strong woman. Everything that has hit me in life I’ve dealt with. I’ve cried myself to sleep, picked myself up, and wiped my tears. I’ve grown from things that were meant to break me. I get stronger by the day and have God to thank for that.
Life is like a roller coaster: It has ups and downs, but it is your choice to scream or enjoy the ride!
