Can You be a "Master of Hardships?"
“A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardships.”
Those who knew her say she had a huge ego and was often a bit “prickly” to be with. That said, she was uniquely qualified to comment on mastering hardship.
I continue to be inspired by clients, family and friends who are successfully handling hardship these days. Their stories and example buoy my spirits and, if our media was truly interested in contributing to a better world, those stories should be shouted from the rooftops.
Seeing is not believing. Believing is seeing. My recommendation is to seek out those people and circumstances that reinforce life affirming beliefs and attitudes. After all, it’s your personal choice of how you maintain your inner being. Why not choose extraordinary environments? Comments are welcome!
With love and respect,
