Let's not forget my near death incident with Cymbalta and wicked withdrawals from Benzodiazepines. Seriously, there is nothing quite like hitting rock bottom, unless you've been there and done that, too.
Most folks don’t think they could have survived it if they had been in my shoes. Yet, everyday I see people who face their fears.
Brave women and men who are determined to rise above hardships. They may be dirt broke. They may be alone. They may not feel strong.
They may be terrified. They may have doubts. They may only have a mustard seed of faith.
But somehow and someway, they muster up the courage to keep on keeping on. And someday they look back and see how much they’ve overcome.
That in the face of trials, they chose to become triumphant. They choose to have hope.
Nevertheless, they persisted. You can, too.
