A couple of days ago, I was given information that shattered my dreams. I felt like I never had; my heart was broken. I thought that because my planned path was no longer possible, my dreams could never come true and my life would never be as good as imagined. After two days of reflecting and well mourning in a way, I have come to the realization that there are many paths that lead to happiness. If one door is shut (even slammed), another one will open. It might not be as glamourous or fabulous at first, but it can prove to be even better than what you had dreamt up. Dream big but when reality intervenes, don't ever give up. Life will go on, on to happiness just through different means.
