There is a lot to be thankful for – simple things that make us alive like having complete body parts is something that is worthy of praise and thanksgiving. But when we lose at life’s challenges, we can’t help but falter and sulk in one corner of the world to forget the pain.

It is so hard to be optimistic all the time, especially if we know that the process to recovery is a long and painstaking one.

This is the reason why we have so much respect for Taylor Morris.
