When life deals you a blow, or throws lemons at you, don't just duck and make lemonade by yourself.

The power of belonging and feeling connected and supported can overcome some of life's biggest challenges.

Sometimes, it does take a village.

Share your thoughts, feelings and hardships with those family members and friends most likely willing to lend an ear and a helping hand (whether literally or in the form of sound advise and guidance).

Embrace your humanness and Humanity's gift for understanding, caring, forgiving and loving.
