When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.
The heart of the difference is not ability or even talent, but desire
The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

No soup for you!
Of course, in my life nothing is straight-forward. I had an interview for my citizenship today. I made it through with flying colors (how many stars do we have on the flag? Who signs bills into laws?) and getting scheduled for an oath ceremony later that day, I get stopped and told that they are missing one piece of paper – my entry visa that allowed me to come to US (working visa). Once they request it from the center in Nebraska and get it, I’ll have another oath date scheduled. And why did they have all my paperwork in the office for over a year? To sit on it? Not that I am so anxious to become a legitimate voter, but I planned to go home for New year’s holidays, and now it is postponed indefinitely! I am not denied citizenship, I just can’t swear to this country until I have this little sheet from 15 years ago. Don’t you love bureaucracy? And I mean it in a general way, every country sucks at it.
So all is just perfect in my little world. I had a whole day class on Saturday at the massage school, and now can turn you over any way you want me! For a healing treatment that is. Common over, make an appointment!
