This I Believe

I believe that tomorrow will always be better than today. Every time people seem to feel like their life is over and everything is going wrong, it seems as if the next day, tomorrow, will always be better.

This year, I have learned that life will throw a lot of curve balls at you and usually there is more bad than good, but inspite of everything that is thrown at you, it all happens for a reason. I had my car totaled, got caught drinking alcohol, and lying continuously to my parents.

I know by getting caught with all of these things it is going to make me a better person in the long run. I know that this is going to stray me away from everything I have been doing wrong and I am going to be put back on the right track. Maybe not today, but tomorrow.

Today, people think that I should be angry at my parents for punishing me and the people that told on me, but I am not. I know that they are doing all of this for a reason. Not for me to be mad at them today, but for me to do right tomorrow.

So even though I feel like my life has completely came to an end right now. I am happy that all of this has happened. I was going down the wrong road. The road of darkness and shame, but I won’t be able to anymore. Maybe not today, but tomorrow.
