There is something liberating about living life to the fullest.  Those of us who live this way often incur scars on our bodies, hearts, and minds.  One author, Chris Cleve, encourages us to see our scars in a positive light:

I ask you right here please to agree with me that a scar is never ugly. That is what the scar makers want us to think. But you and I, we must make an agreement to defy them. We must see all scars as beauty. Okay? This will be our secret. Because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, I survived.
