Life isn't perfect, or kind sometimes.
Life can suddenly change, or seem to stay the same dull for eternity.
I have learned, and try and remind myself, that life is only what you make it.
Don't rely on others to make you happy.
Don't expect the too much, and don't settle for too little.
Stop playing the victim.
Stop living life like it owes you something.
Find happiness, in the small things.
The things that really do matter at the end of a life.
Time spent, memories shared, love felt.
I thank God every single day, for what he's blessed me with.
Even the struggles, without them I would not value or appreciate the little things.
My life may be less than glamorous to some people.
My life is exactly what I want it to be for now.
If God sheds light on our next path, I will trust & follow that direction.
For now, I am consumed & enjoying every moment he gives me as a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend.
I give, pay attention, help & encourage.
And I love it.
