In this world, everything that is alive must get old and die. Rivers shift course and even dry up. Mountains rise and fall. Your world will change.

It’s a part of this life. And it isn’t tough to be a cynic. To be a bit pessimistic (or even a lot).

To smile, to be positive, to have hope…that is tough. To hug your kids and tell them that this beautiful world is full of hope…is tough. To mentor a youth from a rough background and inspire them to believe…is tough. To find work that deserves you…and put your shoulder into it with a smile…is tough.

That is character. That is strength.

Cynics are lazy and that’s not tough.

The world deserves your best…be tough.
