Difficulties arise in the lives of us all. What is most important is dealing with the hard times, coping with the changes, and getting through to the other side where the sun is shining just for you.
It takes a strong person to deal with the tough times and difficult choices. But you are a strong person. It takes courage. But you possess the inner courage to see you through. It takes being an active participant in your life. But you are in the driver’s seat, and you can determine the direction you want tomorrow to go in.
Hang in there…and take care to see that you don’t lose sight of the one thing that is constant, beautiful, and true: Everything will be fine-and it will turn out that way because of the special kind of person you are.
So…beginning today and lasting a lifetime through-hang in there, and don’t be afraid to feel like the morning sun is shining…just for you. Always remember: “You’re not a failure because you don’t make it, you’re a success because you try.”
