The One Simple Question That Changed My Entire Perspective on Life

From ‘why’ to ‘what.’ It was really that simple.

My Strength was Tested

My Strength Was Tested Again

A Profound Sadness Engulfed Me

A Frustration Began to Grow Around Me

A Miniscule Shift in my Thinking

From ‘Why?’ to ‘What?’

A Sense of Well Being Started to Grow

A Complete Change in Perspective

Because I now realize that while the wound is still there, it’s now covered in scar tissue.

There’s no reopening it.
There’s no going back to that place.
It’s done now.

And that is more freeing than I will ever be able to express in words.

If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else. -Booker T. Washington
