The Positive Bucket (Monday Inspiration)

We all have two buckets inside of us, the negative bucket and the positive bucket.

You’re not useless. You’re not worthless. You’ve got your bucket of positive memories and your defiance at a bitter world to smile.

And you will be invincible.

    What is possible to achieve? That’s only limited by one person – you. The limits of your imagination. The limits of your courage. The limits of your determination.
