Think About it Thursday

“If you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror. Look a little closer; stare a little longer because there’s something inside you that made you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit.  You built a cast around your broken heart
and signed it yourself. You signed it, ‘They were wrong.'”  Shane Koyczan
