"Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it."

I came across this quote by Helen Keller today and it struck me – hard. I woke up not feeling 100% well physically, but I decided that I was going to push through and accomplish the things that I had set to accomplish for the day. Now, my little sore throat and headache was nothing in comparison to the physical hardships faced by Keller and others, but it was a small sampling of my own power and drive to overcome and made this quote even more salient for me.


It is easy to see the pain and suffering that many of us face on a daily basis, but it is sometimes not as easy to see the triumphs – even the small triumphs – we are consistently privy to. Today, you are challenged to see the victory and greatness in all situations, to recognize your blessings and to know that you have the power to surmount and overcome even the most precipitous of challenges.

Blessings to you!
