“The most wonderful, amazing, spectacular and worthwhile things in life…do not come easy. Working hard may bring battle scars, but they are living proof that you had the determinative spirit to accomplish something all on your own. Tired eyes are signs that you were the first one there and the last to leave. Rough hands prove you did what no one else was willing to do; and tears show the world that your body is a unique entity, for it will purge all of the hurtful emotion to provide space for positive energy and life to the heart.
So wear your beautiful badges of honor, courage and strength, for they ultimately shape who you are and personify personal destiny.”
