With outstretched hands we should welcome...ruin
Ruin is where your transformation begins
It is where we come to a place in our journey to forgive
Dreams come alive
Pain starts to relinquish its grasp 
And we come to the realization that we can survive

I believe that we should embrace all the good and the bad that is bestowed upon our lives. With the good....we smile. With the bad....we learn. ~Tammy~

    This is like enlightenment and clarity in one. This poem made me think about bad things differently. This has definitely helped me a little.
