You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot - it’s all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.

You couldn’t have strength without weakness, you couldn’t have light without dark, you couldn’t have love without loss.
