I finally got my hands on a Wayne Gretzky rookie card, but this is much more than just a card to me. 7 years ago I sold my Gretzky rookie card so that we could pay our bills.
Since I was a kid, I have had a fascination with eagles. While all other birds fly away from a storm, an eagle flies directly into it. They carefully position themselves to take advantage of the incoming winds that eventually lift them high above the storm. We can apply a similar idea to our personal storms. Rather than waiting for the storm to pass, face it head on. After all, the shortest way through is always the middle.
