“I think life’s better than that. When you close a door, turn your back on it and step into the hallway. You’ll realize there are infinite doors. Not all of them are open to you, but many, if not most, are. You’re young. You have the rest of your life to open doors.” Sheila hugged Tiffany. “Step into life’s hallway, kiddo.”
Today I will step into life’s hallway.
