Stand Strong and Never Give Up!


Every one of us has dealt with what we feel is the worst day of our life.  You will even hear yourself saying at times, ‘this is the worst thing that could happen to me.’  Well if you are reading this, you survived that day and will survive many others that come your way.  The way to get through these days is to be strong.  Easier said than done, but if you surround yourself with people you trust and can rely on, there is no obstacle you can't overcome.

It is often said that you are only handed what you can deal with and I believe that is so true. We as individuals have choices we make in life every day... however, some people suffer from illnesses and circumstances which doesn’t allow them to make those decisions, because those choices are being made for them.  If you are one of the lucky ones who are healthy, then you should truly try and live a full vibrant life - free of drama.  In order to make that happen, you need to stand strong and never give up.  If you have a friend or family member who is suffering from an illness such as cancer, alcoholism, addiction of any kind, or any sickness, then your job is to surround these people with love, patience and support because their choices are tougher and many are not completely in charge of their destiny without a great deal of support.  

So this week, give yourself the gift of standing up and taking control of your life, your attitude and your direction.  Surround yourself with those who will be on your team, have your back and contribute to the beauty of living authentically.  Let's be there for one another.
