We all live with joys and sorrows and challenges and disappointments and fears and dashed hopes and difficulties. That’s part of membership in the human race. What makes each of us unique is the path we choose to walk.
Do you accept your life’s challenges as homework to learn what you’re supposed to learn?
Do you try to take one small, positive step each day?
Do you live in hope and try to steer your mind away from hopelessness?
What can you plan to do right now to take care of yourself?
There’s a great story in this blog about a single Mom who put herself through medical school. I’m sharing the photo because stories like that inspire me to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
I sometimes feel like I’m just walking in place. However. The train that I’m on will eventually arrive at the station. Maybe not on my timetable but it’s right on schedule to reach its destination.
Just try to be the hero of your own life story.
