What a great day to link up. 
My favorite quote & why

The instant I read today's topic I immediately thought of the above quote. Than I started to think about why it's my favorite quote and everything came flashing back to me. 

I was 17 years old and experiencing my first heart break. My boyfriend at the time and I had been together almost 5 years and he just shattered my world. My brother had moved 500 miles away and my mom packed up my entire life and moved to Minnesota. 

During this time, one of my best friends found this quote and sent it to me. I remember reading it during the heart break. I wrote it on my white board above my bed. I kept repeating it to myself until I finally believed it. 

I finally believed that life isn't perfect but it's totally worth it! Our life is truly what we make of it. 

What is your favorite quote & why?
