“Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm”
Over time, slowly but surely, I have come to realize how true and real these words are. If I have learned anything from struggling through a breakup in high school, cancer in my family, moving away from home all on my own, family troubles, and the random tidbits life threw at me just like it throws at everyone else…it’s that everything amazing I have gotten out of my experiences was when I made the choice to carry enthusiasm with me, especially in my failures. It was when I made the choice to be the best I could possibly be; to be a better person than the day before. It was when I made the choice things would get better whenever I felt my world was crashing. It was when I made the choice to forgive for the sake of peace in my life. And it was definitely when I made the choice to love who I am, even if I am far from perfect. Circumstances do have an impact on you, but you yourself impacts whether a circumstance will build you or break you.
