One of the things you know at 40-something is that for every down there is an up. You have been through some tough downs…at the time they seem the end of the world. But you do have the strength to make it through to the other side. You are resilient.
“You are stronger than you think you are. You really are. Just think back on all the things that you’ve been through that you have made it through. Every time you’re think, ‘I didn’t know that I could do it.’ But at the time you think, ‘Oh, my God. I can’t do it.’ There are times when I know everyone thinks, ‘I’m going to die. I can’t do it. I can’t make it through this.’ But you do. You always do.”
