I am incredibly blessed and cognizant of the fact I am
just an ordinary girl leading a pretty extraordinary life.

Don't waste life with petty gossip, wanting what others have,
being hateful or wanting to avenge those who have wronged you.
Move forward, forgive, and just keep moving.
Life is so short and we only graze the surface
down here on earth.

Make your days count.
Don't waste one single one...

I look forward to writing and sharing more
adventures with you throughout 2015.
God Bless You...
