A Quote From Jose’ N. Harris That A Friend Shared With Me Gives The Right Perspective On Life
“There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.” Jose’ N. Harris
