IT'S THE WAY YOU CARRY IT" Lena Horne
I've had this quote posted in my studio(s) for a long time now. It just makes me think. Everyone has struggles. Everyone. If it's not money, it's health. If it's not friendship, it's career. If it's not a sound mind, it's love. If it's not one struggle, it's another. It reminds me that I am not alone in my struggles. We don't necessarily choose the conflict but we choose how we'll carry it. Will I bear it well like my grandmother did? Or will I cuss, complain, and cut out on life? What makes me a stronger person is the better choice.
When I read this I hear in my heart - Carry It Well. That's why I like it.
