Don't under estimate the value of good memories.
POW's Prisoners of War used memories and there imagination to survive through the cruelest punishment.
One prisoner was a golfer and each day would visualize playing a round of golf. He imagied standing with his ball on the tee taking his swing and seeing the ball land on the fairway saying to himself what a great shot. He would continue this until he completed his round of golf.
A piano player imaged that the was playing his grand piano and hearing every note. He would do this every day and even compose new material.
Everyone knows John McCain and his story of survival.
The movie "Unbroken" bsed on a true story. You can see how the will can survive.
I am not broken I am proud to say that my will is strong and I am "Unbroken" no matter what comes my way.
Stay strong and concentrate on the goodness in life past, present and into the future.
