If there’s one lesson I’ve learned more than anything else in my life,
It’s that happiness is something worth fighting and struggling for.
I’ve known intense pain so I seek pleasure.
I’ve known hatred so I seek to love and be loved.
I’ve known grief, despair, loss
so I strive for and celebrate happiness
Wherever and whenever I find it.
With every lesson learned,
Every hardship faced,
I find myself coming closer and closer
to the peace and the happiness I’ve always wanted
in my life.
And I’m grateful every day that my husband and my stepsons
and my friends and now my readers, viewers, followers,
are a part of that journey.
