"How you react to friction can determine your resulting position. For you will either be calloused or sharpened depending upon the elements you harken. There are no losses in a lesson as long as the lesson isn't lost. Everyday is an opportunity to improve, maintain, or degrade. Decide if you will shine, be dull, or throw shade."
Life throws many curves, distractions, and hurdles our way and there is no escaping it. Yet, how you react to those things can determine if and how you survive those things.
