"So far you've survived 100% of your worst days. This too shall pass." - Unknown
Wow, this quote caught me off guard. When I’m in the middle of a rough patch or having one of my worst days, the last thing that I’m thinking is about all the worst days I’ve survived. It’s a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad, worst day and I’m busy being in the middle of the miserable! Sitting here now, taking that look back, I’ve made it through so much more than I thought possible. I’ll bet that is true for you too! How many of “those days” have you survived when you didn’t think it was possible? How many “worst days” have you overcome? Will more “worst days” come? Yes. But can we survive, thrive, and keep rocking at life? Absolutely, because we are survivors!
