Teresa Barnes: I wish for you a year of overcoming if you are going through something difficult

Quoting Teresa Barnes, Lung Advocate, President of fluidIQ, on LinkedIn:

”14 years ago, I received an incredible gift from my sister. It was a stuffed bear she made from one of our father’s old shirts. It was an emotional moment as this photo perhaps conveys.

Several years earlier, we’d lost our father after a failed lung transplant. It was an emotional roller coaster that changed my life – and my career – forever. Little did I know when I got this teddy bear that I would also lose my sister just four months later.

Pain, grief and suffering are so hard on us as humans. All we have are our faith, our hope and our perseverance to get through them.

I wish for you a year of overcoming if you are going through something difficult.

Turn your pain into gain by choosing an attitude of hope and a heart of resilience. It is so easy to just give up. Don’t.”
