I have been listening to a lot of incredible people as of late and I have noticed a common theme of I went down a really bad road and it helped me push myself to a much better life.  It has made me ask the question: why does things have to go to shit before we realize that we can choose what our life is?  Sure, I have had some crappy things happen to me in my life. To be true though, I have had a good life. I have had amazing family and friends who have treated me very well. I have treated myself very well.  Why do I have to have terrible things happen to me in order for me to truly go after the life that I want?

I don’t think I do. I think that I can just have the amazing life that I want because I can.  I don’t have to be awakened by bad things happening. I can be awakened by focusing on the good things.
