Time waits for no one. 10 years will come any way it goes. Do what you have to do to get to where you desire to be.
You will fail at some things you attempt. But when you do attempt, go in with the thought of a successful future....not second guessing yourself. Give all failures a second chance if it means something to you.
Everyone who says they are your friend , are not. Friends never turn their back just because the going gets rough. Friends support and criticize you to your face not behind your back.
No one can take care of you if you do not take care of yourself. Sometimes you have to put your needs before all others. I am not good at that and I have ran myself into the ground.
Everyone you know will judge you even if they say they don't so you cannot worry yourself with the chatter.
Forgiveness does the body, heart, and mind good. No one is perfect. People will hurt you. You will hurt people. But forgiveness can shorten the length of pain and make you stronger. Dwelling and sulking will destroy you... if others don't forgive you, forgive yourself and keep it moving.
Everything ain't for everybody.
The best things in life are free: Love, forgiveness, caring, and comfort. You can go broke in search of happiness and this is all you need.
Happy 36th birthday to me! Smooches!
