Life Ain’t Perfect (#136)

Sometime things just don’t work out. Sometimes it truly is the ‘worst case scenario’. So what do you do? Give up? Run away?

I’m grateful to have made it this far. To be granted another day, another opportunity. Balance can’t exist without both the highs and lows in life. Our universe is host to EVERYTHING including both the good and bad. We can use gratitude to find ourselves somewhere in the middle.
