What’s your secret?


As I was sitting writing this morning trying to collect the threads of my sporadic stops and starts into some kind of sense I looked up.

A lady walked into the coffee shop and she had a quality about her, hard to describe really but she was kind of luminous.

She came over to where I was sitting to get a paper so I asked her “you look really well and really happy, what’s your secret?” She welled up a little and smiled as she told me she had had one of the most difficult weeks of her life in which two friends had died and this morning she got up and made herself go to the gym and said to herself “life is for living, live it while you can”. That resolution shone out of her and I am yet again, humbled by the power of the human spirit to overcome.
