    maybe we're not supposed to be happy

    maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy

    maybe being grateful means recogniing what you have for what it is

    appreciating small victories

    admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human

    maybe we're thankful for the familar things we know and maybe we're thankful for the things we'll never know

    at the end of the day the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate

    Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk, for that'll teach you to keep your mouth shut.

    One day you'll come to me & ask which is more important, you or my life. I'll say "my life" & you'll walk away never knowing that YOU are my life.
