Always look forward to new adventures that bring new opportunities and learn to acknowledge lessons learned from the past. The future has the potential to be better than the past so long as you stay focused and strive to be better. It only becomes bleak when your outlook is negative.
The most important thing I’ve learned about life is to surround yourself with the right people. As you get older you learn to differentiate between people who are there for you to help you as well as those who have been placed in your life as obstacle. Not everyone is a true friend even though they say they are. Not everyone is an enemy even though you may perceive them as such.
Take full advantage of the individuals who push you to do better and cherish the advice they give. It’s better to have one person who gives you that push you need rather than to have a bunch of people who criticize your efforts without offering a helping hand. After all, that’s why we are all here…….to help one another.
