Yesterday, on Patriots Day, the Boston Marathon turned to tragedy. An event that brings people from all over the world together, turned into a catastrophe. At the time I’m writing this, we don’t know exactly what happened and who was responsible. But it serves to underscore an important truth…
Sometimes you need courage just to live.
There are evil people in the world, natural disasters occur and accidents take place. You never know when you will face rejection, a failure, or a bad medical diagnosis.
Bad things happen to good people all the time. It’s all part of the nuances of life. But you must stand strong and be brave. No mater how difficult the situation seems, don’t give away your power.
So whether you were injured in the marathon yesterday, are fighting an addiction, facing the loss of a loved one, or struggling against all odds, be strong. And know that somewhere, in some way, you will benefit and become stronger because you have faced adversity.
You may feel lonely and alone. But know there are people who care about you and believe in you. And I am one of them.
