You have come so far over the past few weeks, you should be so proud of yourself as you have acheived so much! I like your quote & i think that it is very true! I see it around me all the time.
"The Optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious of the rose."
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, its about learning to dance in the rain"
