Your attitude reflects actions. If you can rise above a negative situation, you can climb any obstacle you come forth too. Your willingness to overcome demons is your greatest strength.

5 "It's your outlook on life that counts. If you take yourself lightly and don't take yourself too seriously, pretty soon you can find the humor in our everyday lives. And sometimes it can be a lifesaver." Betty White
