Second chances are more valuable

Sometimes the value we find in something is determined by how hard we worked to get it.  Not always, but sometimes.  That is why I believe second chances are so much more valuable than the first.   I have fought like hell for the second chances I have received in life.   Imagine pouring your heart and soul into something but falling short and looking up to see you have been provided another shot at … Continue reading Second chances are more valuable
