No matter how mangled Glass' body was he kept pushing. Unable to talk or move in the beginning he didn't let that stop him. Despite being weeks and 1500 miles away from his camp he braved blizzards, treacherous river rapids, the prospects of being killed by man or beast, he pushed on. EVERYDAY. He had a vision and was clear on that vision. He did whatever he needed to do. Things that I as a vegetarian would not know how I could bring myself to do like catch fish with my bare hands and rip it's head off with my teeth because if I don't, I may starve. Or feast on the raw carcass of a baby buffalo that had just been killed by a pack of wolves. I look at that situation cringing at the thought, but also saying in my mind that if that were me I WOULD NOT give up until the breath of life has left me.
I'm seeking to avenge my life but not in the way of bringing harm to anyone. It's more like forgiveness than anything else. Accepting that there are going to be troubles along the way and that I don't have to let them break me. Not my body, not my mind and certainly not my spirit. This reassures and fuels me. Those things that happened in my past helped to shape who I am today. I wouldn't change a thing, nor will I shame myself for my failures. I did not just roll over and die when things got tough. I made some hard decisions and took some drastic steps. All in the name of survival and growth. I'm growing everyday and I'm looking forward to even more growth.
What horrible situations in life have you found it hard to come back from and just wanted to give up? I'd love to know. Leave a comment to continue the conversation.
