Let Tragedy Make You Grow

I have not been feeling myself the past few days — like I have a bug or something. I left in the middle of the workout yesterday because I was throwing up and then took a sick day from work and slept most of the day. This morning, I’m not sure how I have feel.

Good, kind people who cherish every day and look to share their inspiration and support with others. I am finding a lot of comfort reading the stories of the amazing every day heroes who sprang into action during the Boston bombing and how their heroism saved many people. That’s the stuff I am focusing on — and the amazing stories of the tragic victims. The world lost some special people this week.
