On being tough

‎"We have not journeyed all this way across the centuries, across the oceans, across the mountains, across the prairies, because we are made of sugar candy."
Sir Winston Churchill, speaking to the Canadian House of Commons, December 30, 1941.

Sir Winston sure did have a way with words. And on this day, he was absolutely on the money. We're tougher than we look, and sometimes it's not a bad idea to remind ourselves of this.

Your turn: Can you define toughness?

A friend of mine once said it was just having the courage to get out of bed in the morning to start the day. I tend to think it's the ability to love!
