We may not be able to prevent disease or injury or life challenges ranging from job loss to family deaths to war, but whatever fate comes, we control our destiny— We control how we respond to what happens in life.
We write our story.
I thought I was writing mine when I received my medical degree shortly before my 25th birthday. I really started discovering myself and my possibilities after the accident and brain injury that ended that budding medical career.
Decades later, I am still writing a story that includes experiences of more and more people and, I hope, helps more and more people.
Together, and with time, we can do great things. We can write great stories even if we are not great in and of ourselves. I know.
