Something for the Struggle

Ok, I know I’m late to the party, but I finally saw the movie Hidden Figures. Of course I loved the performances, but what I really loved was the story of each woman's laser like focus in reaching their goal.  The movie made their struggle look fairly easy, but after reading some articles about them (I’ll get to the book this summer), in reality they overcame ridiculous odds to accomplish so much. 

And ain’t that how it is?!  The struggle can either break you from the gravity of the goal, or build you so you can carry the weight of it. It all depends on your focus. Like Mr. Frederick Douglas said "If there is no struggle there is no progress."
