Let me tell you how lucky I REALLY am that I’ve gone through the hardships I have.
Yes! The hardships I’ve faced have shown me the value of happy, the true meaning of joy when I feel it, and the gift of laughter.
The hardships have taught me to be present as often as possible. They’ve taught me to respond to situations, rather than react.. And to break down my thoughts until I see truth.
I’m so really lucky to have faced the hardships of my childhood because they taught me what to prevent with my daughters.
I’ve been lucky to expierence the hardships with my boyfriend because they’ve taught me love is WORK… And a choice.
I’ve never had “it easy”. I’ve not had much just given to me in nearly 20 years. These storms in life have built my character, and I don’t think I’ve turned out so badly.
