Life is hard; but only sometimes, most of the time it's pretty enjoyable. Despite what people say, you control who influences you. You have the choice to take the things that others do to you and either let them control you or continue to live as though your life is a gift to be cherished.
Me? I'm choosing to live my life as though it is the greatest gift I've ever been given; afterall, life is meant to be lived, not just gotten through.
