While life has had its major challenges lately, I am reminded of a favorite quote, which renewed my spirit:

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

– Winston Churchill

When your body gets tired and the world has given you a royal beat down, let your heart carry you forward.   Decide to rise above it, knowing, that we are defined by our attitude when we have everything and our patience when we have nothing.  I refuse to live in the darkness while my true essence is luminous, it is time to let it out. I wish to walk in the light and be loved for all of me, every part. Emily Dickinson wrote, “Forever is composed of nows.”  Now is what matters, now is the time and now it will be brighter than ever before. ❤
