True heroes

I am always amazed at the people I meet, who struggle with many different problems in their life, and yet they still keep going and are full of hope and faith. And they aren't any different than you and I, they are normal people who have every day challenges. Yet somehow it doesn't knock them down, but gives them more courage and wisdom in their lives.
I am reading a book about one such person. I am drawn to those type of true heroes, they are a great example to me and to be honest with you ...that is what I want to be when I grow up!  So this post is for all you true heroes out there, that make the world a better place by continuing to survive, thrive and share your strength, your stories and examples to us. You are our true heroes! Thank you!

“Heroes take journeys, confront dragons, and discover the treasure of their true selves.”  ~ Carol Lynn Pearson

"Everyone is necessarily the hero of his own life story."  ~John Barth

"I believe it is the nature of people to be heroes, given the chance."  ~ James A. Autry
