Someone sent me one of those chain-mail emails full of cute baby pictures and inspiring comments a while back. It was nice but what was nicer was the paragraph at the end. It went along the lines of:
Life is too short to wake up with regrets. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.
Life never deals us more than what we can emotionally handle. You may not believe it at the time but when you look back on your hard times or those difficult situations, you’ll probably surprise yourself at the amount of strength you managed to find.
So go and seek the silver lining that every cloud has because life is too short and you’re a long time dead.
