“History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heart-breaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.”

~B.C. Forbes


At some point in your life you will be confronted with tragedy and loss, maybe several times.  Our ability to experience and then move beyond these challenges is a uniquely human trait that we all possess, but must have the will to utilize.  Perhaps more challenging than these major events are the thousands of little struggles we face each and every day.  That same will must come into play to avoid getting discouraged by the daily annoyances we encounter.  So whether to handle the small annoyance or the major tragedy, our will to not only survive, but thrive, is key.  We can and will find this internal strength both through intentional action, as well as surrounding ourselves with positive and tenacious people who love us.
