Struggling is now a friend of mine. It helped me think outside of the box, to challenge myself, to improvise, to become creative. And when you learn these things, you learn you can do almost anything!

Beautiful Disintegration,The Randyland Adventure by billrock54 on Flickr.
Via Flickr: Randyland is a circus-colored oasis of sunny vibes on Pittsburgh’s formerly grim North Side. The neighborhood’s revival is due, in some significant part, to Randy, who began planting guerrilla mini-gardens in the community in the early 1980s (They now number in the hundreds). His job as a part-time waiter gave him some free time, so in 1996 he purchased the abandoned buildings and yards that now comprise the Mr. Rogers-on-hyperdrive Randyland. Another great reason to visit Pittsburgh!

If you do the same thing as everybody else, then you’re the same as them. But I think everyone has a unique personality and character, so why not just be different? Be the best you can. Be happy with who you are!
