Every struggle I’ve had has shaped who I am today. Every difficulty I’ve endured was a classroom where I had lessons to learn and I was my own teacher, choosing what to learn from each situation.
The road I’ve traveled may not have been easy but it was mine. Every situation I have faced has led me here and each new one leads toward an unknown future. Each lesson, each challenge, every failure and triumph, all paving a path which I walk each day.
I treasure the moment I am in, the person that I am. I know the road continues forward to yet another place I know nothing of and that this moment too is leading me toward that one.
Today I am just grateful for the ground on which I stand. The path behind me had its purpose and the path in front of me is yet unknown, but here I stand today stronger and better than yesterday. I am grateful for this spot of road I’m on, this patch of ground that soon will be behind me.
Today I just look around and appreciate that which is within my view, for we never know how long it will be here before the path moves us on once more.
