The Balance in Life



Never forget that fairy tales are made from tragedies.  Behind the most impenetrable armor is the greatest weakness.  All of the sparkling eyes have been crafted from countless tears.  The biggest smiles have seen the most sadness.  Remember that character is built from unpleasant circumstances.  Happiness and satisfaction can’t be felt without having sensed disappointment first.  The brightest light needs to have encountered the deepest dark to shine just right.  Never forget that all positives need a bit of negative to truly be pure.
