This year many, many of my friends and family have faced tragedy, loss, incredible hardships and pain. They're good people. Hardworking people who just keep going because the alternative is not within their makeup.
One of my friends says we keep going because we are strong. That is true. But I think we also move forward because we don't know how to quit. That's a tribute to our hearts and souls.
Quitting would be easier.
Some say they couldn't continue without the support of their families and friends. But there are others with no support network at all. And yet they persevere.
I salute all the folks who pick up, put up, shut up and keep on going. They're the true winners in life.
