The story is told about a land that was once called Paradise. All the people that lived in Paradise were very kind; they each had a house, food, clothing, and all they ever wanted. Everyone shared all that they had with each other and each person looked out for their neighbor.
Then, one day, the wonderful king of Paradise died and soon his son, the prince, became the ruler of the kingdom. Unfortunately, the new king didn’t live by the same credo as his father.

There comes a time in your life,
When you walk away from
all the drama in your life and the 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.
