#23: Be Awesome Instead – NPH

This quote is a pinterest favorite from Neil Patrick Harris’ character Barney on How I Met Your Mother.

To say that it has been rough for me would be the understatement of my life. They said I would never walk again, so I ran a 5k. They said I would have to stop working, so I started two blogs. They said I was broken, so I found some spare parts.

The hardest thing is to be sad. Those other things, they were physical. The damage could be seen and mended. The damage caused by sadness, not so much.

It us up to each of us to heal our hearts. To choose to be awesome.

Because, really, awesome is the best thing you can be. And awesome is what you are when you are you.
