The true heroes in life
Even if you shared your life story with me, It would be wrong for me to say that I fully understand what challenges you have had in your life. We all have had or will have our own struggles and to each one, only them and God truly know the depths of the struggle. Just this morning I was thinking about who the true heroes are in life. They aren't those who wear capes and move about the city unaware, hidden by the darkness of night. Fighting crime, injustice and saving others from peril. They are the men and women like yourself that secretly struggle, sometimes feel alone and may feel that they don't have enough support. They wonder if they will have the strength to continue on. Yet they somehow find the strength and continue. They continue to do the right thing because it's the right thing even when the wrong things may be happening to them. They learn to be grateful for what they do have and not worry about what they lack. They overcome adversity, sometimes with just enough strength to get them through and little reserve. Because of their chosen attitude towards life and their ability to overcome their adversity, in spite of circumstances, they become a bright guiding light of inspiration to others. A message of hope. Their mess truly becomes their message and they broadcast this message influencing others, giving hope and inspiring others to continue on. These are the true heroes in life. The world is watching you to see what you will do with what you've been given.
Accomplish your goals in spite of adversity. Do something amazing. Even if it only means getting out of bed today to make it to the restroom as you fight illness trying just to stay alive. Even if it only means choking down food even though you are nauseous because of the chemo therapy. Even if it's only as simple as telling your loved ones that you love them. These things though small are all heroic. When you move forward and accomplish these things in spite of your adversity, you are a true hero.
Thank you for being one of them and inspiring others to be heroes too.
