just when you think that everything in your life has fallen apart, you meet someone whose house has burnt down, whose mum has cancer and whose best friend died in a car accident last week.
when you feel more let down by a friend than ever before, you take a moment to look around and realise there's another who is willing to pick up the slack, standing right by your side.
when you feel like everything has been a lie, you walk away and wake up one morning and open your eyes that little bit wider and see things for how they really are. And you can actually smell the daisy bush at your back door and see the raindrops drizzling on the window.
when the stress levels have hit the roof and you feel like you cant go any further or you will simply break... you finish your work. and realise that you can always push just that little bit more, when you really have to.
when you think your heart has broken to the point of no return, you let time have a go at healing it and suddenly you find yourself with butterflies in your tummy all over again.
perspective is a wonderful thing... and given half a chance, it will save you that minute you'll waste being sad, when you could be feeling happy.
