“As my suffering mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation–either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force.”

:: Martin Luther King, Jr. ::

Have you ever felt like the same malady befalls you again and again? Like the moment you start to feel you’ve recovered, you suddenly find yourself in the same place all over again?

Me too.

It’s frustrating, especially when it seems as though you make no progress in growing or learning from your situation. In 2011, it is my aim to harness something in me to do what Martin Luther King, Jr. was talking about. To take the suffering, the frustration, the obstacles and transform it into a creative force.
