Just when you think you can't

A close friend of mine told me how her father always motivated her when things seemed to go wrong or when she felt like giving up, "Can't is NOT a word," he would relentlessly remind her. It was this passion to always keep going that helped shape her into the strong woman she is today. In turn, she shared that same wisdom with her own children to inspire and encourage them.

Get over it

If life throws you a curve ball, get over it! It is easy to feel sorry for yourself and play the woe is me syndrome but I encourage you not to fall into that trap.
