The Classic Pamela Positive: Winston Churchill: We’re Not Made of Sugar Candy

       “We have not journeyed all this way across the centuries, across                          the oceans, across the mountains, across the prairies, because                        we are made of sugar candy.”

-Sir Winston Churchill

 

Going through a tough time?  Does the mountain you are climbing seem too steep?

But it’s not just a mountain, and it’s not your mountain only.

You are striving not only for yourself, but also for others.  Whatever you are trying to achieve today, whatever you hope to have in the future, can be used as inspiration for others…

You’re learning from it. Growing from it, and becoming a better person. Don’t give up, you don’t want to do that; don’t be discouraged, it won’t aid your cause.  You’re not a piece of cotton candy, disintegrating; no, you are firm, resolute, patient.

Your mountain lesson isn’t just for you. It will be an example, a story with which you can encourage others.

Thank you for persevering — the world thanks you!
