If you aren't grateful;
you haven't lived.
If you have never forgiven;
you're one step behind
because without forgiving-
you don't move forward-
you freeze where time is timeless,
where you go through life on auto-pilot.
And everything you dream
is too far away-
your reach is too short.
Instead of living
you fail to try.
And while the baggage yields your life-
you keep walking backwards-
moving further away from your dream.
So while you can
and don't take no for an answer.
Make your own answers-
and seize every moment of every day.
Everyone deserves to be happy
and everyone deserves to be loved and love to fulfill that happiness.
Without trying you can't live
without forgiving, you can't move on
so forgive, love
and live the way you want to live your life.
Be grateful for everything you have
and respect everything you don't.
You really only have what you want
because if you want something enough
you have that urge to make it possible,
never give up,
cause your own life is meant to unfold
and become just as amazing and possible as it is supposed to be.
