Every situation and person I have encountered in my life has helped me to learn something about myself I would not have otherwise. Not all of them where enjoyable at the time, but at the end of the day they helped to shape my outlook on life. For this reason I remain grateful.
At times I have realized that to create a better life for myself requires doing something different, whether it be making a minor adjustment or taking a bolder step.
The illustration for this post shows how each step is interconnected, each of them building from one another. To me this represents what life is. When I take a step back to look at it I see that everything had a purpose - both the good and bad.
There's no going back. All I can do is move forward and enjoy the ride...
