Stories of Hope and Survival: Day Five

In this battle for life, it is easy for fear, despair, despondency, discouragement and depression to creep in and take control. But no matter how great the fear, how physical or emotional pain or how long the suffering, the price we have to pay or how deep the wound, how dark long and lonely the night, there is always HOPE. No matter what has happened there is always tomorrow.

The greatest thing I have gained is power over my own life, power to be resilient, to bounce back, power to be at peace with myself, power to endure, power to love and be loved, to give and receive, to be productive, creative and accomplish.

I don’t have to be perfect. I can be me. I can control destructive criticism by not allowing it to penetrate and destroy me. My life is full at the moment.
