Face Your Storm - Chris Gardner

One of these days, I hope to post a few blogs about some of the fun things my family and I did this summer, hopefdully before summer slips into fall, then winter! But today is not that day.

Do you remember the movie, The Pursuit of Happyness, starring Will Smith? Today I would like to share with you a very inspiring story that I read an from the December issue of Fusion about Chris Gardner, the real star, who Will acted out in be half of; I think it is well worth the post... hope you enjoy! :D

We all have, or have had, circumstances or events in our lives which we didn't choose to have - which could coin us as "victims" of circumstances.

Or, our responses can bring about a much different coin - we can find ourselves coined as something like "amazing," "proactive," "accountable;" we can be coined as someone who makes lemmonade out of lemons.

Let us be proactive individuals who are thankful for every experience in our lives; who know what matters, and who make lemmonade out of lemons. This is what makes life worth living! This is living!
