I sometimes spend so much time envying others, dwelling on how they have so much that I’ll never experience. But I’ve realized how blessed I am. How beautiful my life is. How much love I have to give — to myself and to others. How many things I experience that others can only dream about. Shoot. I’m really, truly blessed. it’s time I start using all of these gifts, and time I start appreciating all of my experiences. Even the moments and friends that have come and gone. I refuse to dwell on what I no longer have, for I was still able to have them, even if just for a little bit.
