Look ahead…

It doesn’t matter who you were before this day. It only matters who you are today and who you are going to be from this day on, you decide…….. “The past is over, learn from it, the future is coming, prepare for it, the present is now – Live it!” Someone once described life like a book: Some chapters are sad, some chapters are scary, some are happy and some are exciting; but we must keep turning the pages, we must keep moving forward, (even if it is a millimeter at a time) otherwise we will never know what the…
