Bad things do happen; how one responds to them defines character and the quality of life. One can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of loss, or one can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift one has life itself. Let life get the best of you, make sure that you get the best of it, refuse to give up! Never say no, make this life yours! Continue to rise, continue to fight even when life knocks the wind out of you! Continue to lead, even when some choose not to believe in you.
