Some Good Stuff

Sometimes inspiration comes from within, a good friend, family, a book, music or our surroundings. This little tid bit happens to come from a family friend that I consider to be more family than friend. I wanted to share it with as many people as possible because I think there is much to be said and taken away from this.

I do not define myself by how many roadblocks have appeared in my path.

I define myself by the courage I’ve found to forge new roads.

I do not define myself by how many disappointments I’ve faced.

I define myself by the forgiveness and the faith I have found to begin again.

I do not define myself by how long a relationship has lasted.

I define myself by how much I have loved , and been willing to love again.

I do not define myself by how many times I have been knocked down.

I define myself by how many times I have struggle to my feet.

I am not my pain,

I am not my past.

I am that which has emerged from the fire.
