I recently got this incredible message:    

On September 14th I was rushed to the ER with severe acute pancreatitis and my liver and kidneys were starting to call it quits as well.  I don't remember my first 26 days there but I remember waking up and checking live unbound and seeing a post that carried me through everyday there, the bed rest at home, the first walks I took and the first trip back to the gym to regain the 40 lbs I had lost. The post said, "Dare to believe that something inside of you is superior to circumstances, this state of mind turns seemingly hopeless situations into enjoyable challenges." I have gained almost all my weight back, stopped drinking and living unhealthy for 76 days now and I've never been happier. Thank you live unbound.

That post was my take on a Bruce Barton quote which is “Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.”  This story encouraged me to always share and spread words of inspiration, there’s always someone who needs them.
