I consider myself to very mentally tough (Thanks Daddy, for teaching me this skill). Some people might say I’m stubborn, and I guess there could be some truth to that, but I don’t think the two concepts are synonymous.
Sometimes I fall victim to allowing myself to feel down in the dumps. It doesn’t usually last long, and I feel stupid and pathetic for letting it happen at all. And then something like this crosses my desk and I’m back to being good and strong and simple and grateful and a believer in the pure, gentle nature of the human spirit.
Stop what you are doing. Read this now. I read…A LOT. Rarely have I read something as important and as touching, as inspiring, and as humbling as this. Bret, Unbroken by Steve Friedman
