A few years ago, while I was surfing the internet, I found a quote that held a deep meaning. “Every moment you get is a gift. Spend it on things that matter.

My eyes skipped to the last sentence. “Don’t spend it by dwelling on unhappy things.” Reading this made me feel slightly better, considering that I wasn’t the only one out there who experienced obstacles. My eyes slowly darted towards the rest of the quote. “Every moment you get is a gift.

Doing something good will result in good, doing something negative will result in bad. The two pieces of literature that supports my interpretation…

The phrase, by itself, implies that a man has the ability to tarnish his reputation by allowing…
