Life sucks right now. Yup. I said it. Things that you never thought would fall apart, are. People that you always thought you could count on, are changing. You are learning damn quickly never to say, "It just can't get worse!", because guess what? It always can.
Now is when you get to prove to the world...no, prove to yourself... who you are.
You can cower in the corner, cover your ears and pretend that none of this is going on, or you can stand up and take responsibility for your life. Nothing and no one can make you feel a certain way. Only you, can decide to feel a certain way.
I know it always seems like life is constantly getting harder and never letting up, but you have to look for the "up". Unfortunately it isn't always as obvious as the things that bring you down. It's easy to focus on the negatives and make excuses. It's harder to focus on the positives and let the negatives make you stronger.
You are a strong person. Look at all the things you have already accomplished. Look at all the things you have overcome. Look at all the hurdles that were supposed to trip you up, that you just laughed at and jumped over. Look at all the times that you could have cried...and did...but smiled through the tears. Look at the people you have inspired.
Look at yourself.
And be proud.
