"Life has many lessons, a lot of them we do not understand at the time we face them, but they all have a purpose. These lessons are only to help us grow and get stronger. Never stress over things that come up in life that are out of your control. Just know there is victory in the end. If you learn the lesson the first time, you will not have to repeat it over and over again."

Tomorrow is beyond today,
Today is part of the past,
The past is where it began.

For the future is but a glimpse
Of that which was today,
Brought into tomorrow.

That today is but a moment
Escaped from the past,
A lesson learned!

Can we?
Will we?
Tomorrow is today.
