I never imagined this would be my present. Never could I have guessed this would be how the first 24 years of life would play out. I’ve tried to plan for everything and anticipate the different outcomes, to no avail. I’ve pleaded with the Universe to hear me out and still no luck.
I think that’s what makes life so special. The outcome will never be as important as the process itself. The end result is almost never the end result. Every day we can begin again. Every day we can use gratitude to remind us of what we’ve accomplished and how far we’ve come.
I hope you realize your own adventure is just beginning. You’ll find that change is just around the corner and through patient perseverance, I know you can make the most of it. We have an opportunity to celebrate life and appreciate those we share it with. It all starts with us.
