I am a huge fan of quotes. I find that on certain days the right quote can really change my mind set from negative to positive. There are also certain quotes that have made me sit back and evaluate how my life is turning out. The quote “everything happens for a reason” has always hit home with me. When I was younger I would have never paid any attention to this kind of thinking, but in the last few years it has become very apparent that certain situations both good and bad really do happen so that other events can happen. I do feel like the bad times have definitely made me stronger and meeting people who were not right for me have led me to some of the most amazing people in the world. I now have some of the most supportive people in my life which has helped me realize that I need balance in this chapter of my life so I can live happy and healthy. I know that if I work hard enough whatever happens next in this chapter of my life will be meant to happen.
