Happy Today!

We spent the weekend binge watching the HBO shows Watchmen, Bessie and The Immortal Life of Henreitta Lacks.  These stories detailed a few societal issues that are a little tough to swallow but the stories made me think and made me feel respect for the strength of the characters depicted.  They reminded me of the strength and fortitude that people have within themselves.  Sometimes, it takes a difficult circumstance to bring out that strength.  

Right now, the world is going though what could be loosely described as difficult times.  But you will get through this and you will be stronger than you could have ever imagined. It’s a time where you will look back and remember that you lived through a historic time and you Bet

Today I want to share a few quotes to remind you that you are stronger than you believe.  You need a little faith in yourself and determination.   And if you don’t believe it yet, smile!

Smile though your heart is aching.

Smile though your heart is breaking.
