Life is too short to be bitter, because not everyone is out to get you. Your actions always have results, whether bad or good. It's your choice what actions you take, and what you receive.
I have a lot to be thankful for, and I thank god for it everyday. There are many things, but I will share just a few. First off, I would have rathered being in Oahu right now, but sometimes things don't go the way we want them to go. Living in Oahu was just not meant to be, but maybe in the future. Leaving was the hardest thing to do, but it was for the better and everything worked out. I'm thankful for the path that god has put me on, because a year ago I wouldn't have seen myself living in Chicago. I'm thankful to be in school, have a job, a roof over my head, and also living a lot more closer to my family. I'm sure my family is annoyed by me by now, but hey! I LOVE YOU! : )
