My awesome President could not have said it any better. He really inspires me. He speaks the truth. Reality. After reading this, I feel invincible, like I can do anything, because I feel like what I have gone through is not all for nothing. I have a different perspective. I feel hope. I feel strong. I feel wise. No regrets. Empowered. Awesome. Ready to take on the world with my loved ones by my side.
Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. it’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.
