The First Time

  1. The first time you turn your high heels around and walk away from a bad situation is the first time you realize that you control your own happiness.

  2. The first time you do something kind for someone who cannot repay you is the first time you realize that giving love to others will bring you infinitely more joy than trying to receive love from others.

  3. The first time you realize that we’re not all given equal opportunities is the first time you get the chance to treat everyone equally anyway.

  4. The first time you make a big mistake is the first time you realize that every mistake comes with an equally important lesson.

  5. The first time you love someone deeply is the first time you realize how much sunshine one person can bring to your world.

  6. The first time you look in the mirror and smile is the first time you realize that God created your face and you get to create the expression.

  7. The first time you decide to tell the truth when it would be easier to lie is the first time you realize that having character is more important than avoiding confrontation.

  8. The first time you cross a finish line– whether it’s a literal one or an emotional one– is the first time you realize how strong you really are.

  9. The first time you experience something traumatic is the first time you realize that life is precious and should not be taken for granted.

  10. The first time you face something that scares you is the first time you realize that life is worth living when you take risks.
