Just an observation: it is impossible to be both grateful and depressed. Those with a grateful mindset tend to see the message in the mess. And even though life may knock them down, the grateful find reasons, if even small ones, to get up.
You need to spend time crawling alone through shadows to truly appreciate what it is to stand in the sun.
If you fill your heart with regrets, of yesterday and the worries of tomorrow, you have no today to be thankful for.
We must value life and treasure each breath we take. We must value each person and how he or she touches our lives everyday.
Go for someone who is not only proud to have you, but will also take every risk just to be with you.
Sometimes what you want isn't always what you get, but in the end what you get is so much better than what you wanted.
