Be thankful

I was abandoned as a child, I suffered a childhood I wouldn't wish on any other human but I am alive, I breath and a wake up each day to a new opportunity and for that I am grateful, I am lucky.

One thing that makes me angry is ungrateful people who ruin each opportunity offered with each new day. People who remain fixated on their negative experiences and refuse to accept many others have had far worse experiences.

Accept what is, let go of what was and embrace each new day
