"The taxes I pay because it means I am employed." "The clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough food to eat." "My shadow who watches me work, because it means I am out in the sunshine."
"A lawn that needs to be mowed, windows that have to be washed and gutters that need fixing, because it means I have a home." "The spot I have found at the end of a parking lot, because it means I am capable of walking."
"All the complaining I hear about our government, because it means we have freedom of speech." "The lady in church who sings off-key, because it means that I can hear."
"The huge piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are near." "The alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means that I am alive." ~~~~~~Unknown~~~~~~~

You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, and months over-thinking the past, trying to put together pieces, imagining what could've been, should've been, or would've been. Or....you can pick up the pieces off the floor, and move on as a stronger, smarter person.
If the door closes, quit banging on it! Whatever was behind it wasn’t meant for you. Consider the fact that maybe the door was closed because you were worth so much more than what was on the other side. Remember...you are worth it!!
I am not perfect. I live on the planet Earth where humans live. Humans aren’t perfect. Never have been. Never will be. So I don’t always wear the right clothes. And I don’t always use the right shoes. My memory sometimes fails me. I don’t look like a fashion model. I don’t cook like a French chef. I don’t always do what people expect of me. I am human. I am imperfect. But there is no one else like me in this whole wide world. I am unique. I am a miracle. ""Live your life by just being you!!
