The Good Ol' Days
"I have learned that success is to be measured
not so much by the position that one has
reached in life as by the obstacles
which he has overcome while trying to succeed."
- Booker T. Washington
The struggles we face on our life journeys give us that fine patina that we can eventually claim as wisdom. Having been blessed with a carefree childhood, it never occurred to me that I might end up struggling financially to raise four children on my own. Once it was my reality, however, I embraced it and grew from the struggles that came along with it. With those struggles came confidence and greater empathy for others.
TODAY I WILL FACE EACH STRUGGLE WITH CONFIDENCE AND DETERMINATION.
