Sometimes life gives you things that you can not easily digest.
During these times in your life you gain tools that help you deal
with the next mess life throws you.
Look at what is good, not at what is bad.
See what you can do, not what you can not do.
When you see something that makes you think, you should.
Do not let what you know to be right become replaced
with what you think society wants you to do.
These are the most important moments in your life.
Search for what you want, not what you wish you had.
Be responsible for what you chose, not choosing is a choice.
Sometimes life gives you tools you need-
Remember that.
