“Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths.”
– Arnold Schwarzenegger
I know people who have come from humble origins, without the prettiest of faces, supportive family relations, the best of health, or financial advantages. You know what they find to be their greatest blessings in life? That they came from humble origins, without the prettiest of faces, supportive families, or a dollar in their pocket. As a result, most of them feel self-reliant, resilient and nearly fearless, and overall happy in their lives. And when problems, obstacles or crises befall them – as everyone faces at one time or another – they just look difficulty in the eye and express an attitude of “I am not frightened by you . . . I’ve seen worse before, and survived.” As one of them once told me, “Scar tissue is the strongest tissue in the body.”
This quote was sent in by Felix M. of Lake Charles, Louisiana, a city that has been facing repeated and severe hurricanes of late, whose residents have had no choice but to simply do what they needed to do in order to survive. BRAVO to you, Lake Charles, Louisiana. You have backbones of pure steel!
