    The tests of life are not meant to break us, but to make us. So the consequences we suffer are due to the invations we sent them with our choices. like dominos we set ourselfs up to fall but its our choice to stay down or to get back up and do it again. for the extrodanary takes everything as a challenge and the ordanary takes it as a blessing or a curse
