“Oh when I look back now,
The summer seemed to last forever,
And when you held my hand,
I knew that it was now or never,
Those were the best days of my life!”

Bryan Adams declared that the days of the summer of ’69 were the best days of his life.

Our Scars Make Us Beautiful

Reflect on your darkest times, when each moment felt like an eternity, when you felt you’d never be the same again.

Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if not balanced by sadness. — Carl Jung

You clawed, you fought, you hung on by the skin of your teeth. You did things you didn’t know you were capable of. You connected deeper with yourself. And you eventually triumphed (and deserved each moment of that sweet victory).

You will be broken.

The world breaks everyone,” Ernest Hemingway wrote. “And afterward, many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills.”
