It’s not having everything go right,
It’s facing whatever goes wrong.
It’s not being without fear;
It’s having the determination to go on in spite of it.
It’s not about where you stand,
But the direction you’re going in.
It’s more than never having bad moments;
It’s knowing you are always bigger than the moment.
It’s believing you have already been given everything you need to handle life.
It’s not being able to rid the world of all its injustices;
It’s being able to rise above them.
It’s the belief in your heart that there will always be more good than bad in the world.
Remember to live just this one day
And not add tomorrow’s troubles to today’s load.
Remember that every day ends
And brings a new tomorrow full of exciting new things.
Love what you do, do the best you can,
And always remember how much you are loved.
