Look back & get experience! Look forward & see hope! Look around & find reality! Look within & find yourself! Adversity does teach who your real friends are. It is the enemy who can truly teach us to practice the virtues of compassion & tolerance. Nobody can go back & start a new beginning, but anyone can start today & make a new ending. The very worst disadvantage of being strong is that nobody cares even when you hurt. The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence when mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.
