Do you believe in fate? That people are put in your life for a specific purpose? I understand the reasoning. In a world that wants to justify every decision it can be hard to think that certain things are completely random.

Here's what I do know:

I have had the rug ripped out from under me more times than I'd like to admit. I thought, “It can't get any worse than this.”

Oh, but it can.

If it does, you'll be okay.

In times of crisis the only thing I know how to do is keep going. One second, one minute, one hour, one day at a time. Life keeps moving and there's nothing you can to do stop it.

I have come to the conclusion that there's not much I can't handle. The worst has already happened.

I'm ready.

Bring it on, bitch.
