I had a really tough time with this week's challenge because I realized:


“If I only had….” is not in my mental vocabulary. “If I only had” to me translates to a negative or sad thought.  The words are not optimistic. I prefer my glass to be half full and look to the future, not the past. I understand that I may reflect on the past, but I cannot change it. I may forgive the past. I may learn from my mistakes, but to survive and be happy I must look at where I am today and toward the future. I accept that whatever has happened in the past shall influence my future direction and I embrace all life’s challenges ahead because I believe for everything there is a reason and a season. I believe and accept God’s direction, and my ability to live life to its fullest with what he provides me.  Life is incredible; and I look forward to living and making it the best that it can possibly be.
