Here's Something To Feel Good About Today!
2010-03-22 Rise Above
Facing a fate we cannot change, we are called upon to make the best of it by rising above ourselves and growing beyond ourselves.
Viktor Frankl, Austrian Psychologist and Writer, Holocaust Survivor (1905-1997)
I had the opportunity to meet an extraordinary young woman today. What struck me immediately was the tattoo on her forearm. I asked her about it and without hesitation she opened up to me and told me her story.
A few years before something unpredictable and horrible beyond words had happened to her, she had been raped. This tattoo was a symbol to her and to the world that she would not be a victim of her circumstance, she had and would rise above. She had decided that there would be no limitation in her heart or on her spirit despite what had occurred.
I listened and I learned from her. For me she was a shining example of what it means to move on and to triumph.
There are lessons like this one all around you, everyday people rising to meet unspeakable challenges, feeling their pain, walking through it, to not only survive but to thrive. Are you are one of them? Sharing your story may inspire someone else, just as this girl's story inspired me. If you would like to share your personal story about rising above a difficult situation I would love to hear about it….
