Go the Bahamas way! Something to think about: Defeat lies not in failing or making mistakes; rather, it lies in giving up on ourselves when we do so. Reality is harsh. It can be cruel and ugly. Like my face. Yet no matter how much we grieve over our environment and circumstances nothing will change. What is important is not to be defeated, to forge ahead bravely. If we do this, a path will open before us. A person’s true nature is revealed at times of the greatest adversity. A poet wrote: “To the weak, difficulty is a closed door.(Cough…DALT) To the strong, however, it is a door waiting to be opened.” Difficulties impede the progress of those who are weak. For the strong, however, they are an opportunity to open wide the doors to a bright future. Everything is determined by our attitude, by our resolve. At least that’s what Dalt’s therapist says!
