Kerri Strug and determination

I've been reading a biography on Kerri Strug, the gymnast that landed her vault with one leg and led the US Olympic team to gold. She states, "Just when you believe your dreams have been shattered, everything can come together and you are vaulted into a world where dreams come true."

I believe Miss Strug is right. The moment you think everything revolving around your dream is lost is the moment where your dream will come together. The road blocks are there not to discourage you but to make you work even harder.

My friends, you have a beautiful future ahead of your self. Stop for a minute and see just how remarkable you are- I mean, you have continued on when most people would have given up. I say you deserve a treat, go nab some ice cream or whatever makes you smile and then get back to work. I believe in you.

I LOVE Kerri Strug! I remember watching that and almost crying when she did that. What a great example of never giving up, no matter what, and what a great quote. THank you for sharing. I needed this today.

Well, I love Russo. You're great. I had to stop by even though I'm hoppity-hopping through the A to Z Blog Challenge field.

I always love to read your posts.
