Today we honor the 33 men who were rescued from trapped over two months in a mine in Chile. Today we honor the return of the hero on the hero’s journey! Stress comes in many way, not the least of which is being confined in a small, crowded space more than two miles under the earth for a prolonged period of time. If you are having a bad day today, consider what these guys went through. Let this day (not to mention their ordeal) serve as a reminder of our highest potential.
• Stress Tip For The Day:
No matter how bad your situation might be, no matter how dire things might seem, know that there is always a way out, with help from friends, family, colleagues, even strangers and of course the divine, whatever you conceive this to be. Never give up. The triumph of the human spirit is an inherent quality in all of us!

• Quote for the Day:
“Giving up is the final solution to a temporary problem.” —Gerta Weiss, Nazi concentration camp survivor.
• Photo of the Day:
I took this photo of the Chilean flag while down in the Patagonia region of Chile. Today we honor the lives of all those people who made this rescue possible and we celebrate in the triumph of the human spirit as we celebrate the hero’s return home.
