It changes you for ever, but you are changing for ever anyway. Stories do not change, only the lives they live in do. Every step in life must be cherished. Tough is the one and patience play the key. And easy are the ones when there is fun and constant success but handling both with conscious effort and understanding of it being certain to happen is a must. No matter what it is. Keep pushing Keep smiling. Have a Fantastic day ! Thank you Christley for Making this suit @a.fernsdesignerstudio
