My Best Bet (#199)

There are no guarantees in life. It means there’s a lot of trust involved in our lives whether we like it or not. We trust the sun will come up the next day. We trust we’re where we should be in life. If this is the case, I think my best bet is to accept the things I cannot control and live my life patiently with positivity and gratitude. 07.09.18
