Think about some of your top peak moments.
I do not know anyone who thinks about those moments nearly enough. If we thought about them more often, we would be more grateful, loyal, humble, and confident.
When I graduated from psychotherapy school I won the award for best thesis and another for writing an article that the faculty deemed “most publishable.” I can still see the pride on the faces of my family and friends and I recall their sacrifice on my behalf.
Peak moments pull us out of the dark valley.
