Wisdom has been from mistakes, Failure has led to my growth, Abundance gratefully rises above the paths of my past.
I define myself by the courage I’ve found to forge new roads, Not by how many obstacles have appeared in my path.
I define myself by the forgiveness and the faith I have found to begin again, Not by how many disappointments I’ve faced.
I define myself by how much I have loved and been willing to love again, Not by how long a relationship lasted.
I define myself by how many times I have struggled to my feet, Not how many times I have been knocked down.
I am not my pain
I am not my past
I am a unique individual that has emerged from the fire.
