. The sum total of our deeds, actions and life remains and always will. All of us have, like it or not, done harm and good, and even have many actions that had no noticeable influence at all. The question we all must ask ourselves is if, in the end, our ledger is net red or net black.
focusing on the positive is a good thing, but for me, it's never been enough. I'm not okay because I have these things; I'm actually okay because I choose to be okay.
Sure, I'd like to keep what i have, but if I lose it, well, that's okay. I'll start over, and I gotta tell you, it's been one helluva ride.
When I think of what has happened, it would be easy to be bitter from many of the events of my life (and honestly, I have been hurt often enough that even today I am struggling to deal with the pain), but when you look at these events, in their entirety and as interconnected events, it's such a fascinating journey down my stream.
