I am strong because I am weak. I am beautiful because I know my flaws. I am a Lover because I am a fighter. I am fearless because I have been afraid. I am wise because I have been foolish. I can laugh because I've known sadness.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, tottaly worn out, screaming "WOO HOO. What A Ride!
Need to remember this-God didn't give you the strength to get back on your feet only for you to run back to the very thing that knocked you down. It's not a good idea to pick up something God helped you put away. So true.
