There are people whose ability to remain steadfast and unwavering in the face of change can be truly inspiring. Sadly, I don’t see myself as someone possessing such fine qualities. True, there have been times in my life when I have managed to focus my energies and emerge triumphant from life’s challenges, but in the absence of something to really stand my ground against it sometimes feels as though I’m a cork bobbing around on the surface of an ocean, allowing myself to be buffeted and carried along by forces that are not of my choosing. Not always, but sometimes.
