In the end, we only regret chances we didn't take & mistakes we've all made. The relationships we were too scared to have and the decisions we waited too long to make! There comes a time in your life when you realise who matters, who doesn't, who never did and who always will!

you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you…
