Opposition in life comes to all of us and comes in many ways. Most opposition is mental but some is also physical. We seldom seek out opposition and most shun it- looking for an easier path. Some are blessed to have real opposition that tests their metal.
You, my beautiful daughter were a princess, fast becoming a queen, with the world literally at your feet. And because you had abilities, personality, and looks you were in command. And you were not always a gracious commander.
Then you were brought low, and given a second chance at getting it right.
Your recovery aspirations were lofty concerning the damage done.
You set your goals and put in lots of hard work.
Your spirit was undefeatable.
Your determination just continued and continued.
And four years later we have our princess back, a little humbler, a lot more mature, and just as vivacious as always.
I love you Hillary ,
It is hard to believe that only four years ago I almost lost everything in life. I start with this letter from my father because it not only touches me, but there is a piercing reality and sounding truth to it all. It is a sweet reminder of where I was, where I came from and where I am today. I love my father, even when he calls me out on my "not-so-graciousness," because as we both know, he could have said a lot worse truth!
I use this source to share my story in hopes that it will help reach people who are in need of what ever insight, stories, inspirations and so forth that I have to share about my journey. Which in fact, is a beautiful, forever evolving, exposing tale.
Also, I recently joined a 30 day blog challenge. I started this post over 6 months ago, and here I am seizing the day and finally will be publishing.
I humble myself here today to express my graduated for all things life: little, big, small, and probably insignificant to most. I hope you enjoy this journey with me!
Living gratitude daily,
Hillary A. Brown
