There are 206 bones in the human body. They all bear weight, make you stable and give your body it's form. Reba lists three other bones that are just as essential to success in our lives.
The wishbone. We need hope in our lives. We need something to strive for in the race of life. 'The reason the damned in hell cease acting toward an alteration of their state; despair has taken hold of them.' When our wishes are conveyed through sincere prayers, they are more likely to come true.
The backbone. You have to stand up for yourself. Your rights, your respect due to you and your beliefs. Wishy washy is not an option with success. You either get in the game or get on the bench. As I am often a patient in the healthcare system, I know standing up for what will or will not work for me puts my stubborn backbone to the test.
The funnybone. Life is not as serious when you can laugh at yourself. A sense of humor is one of the most desired characteristics in a person. A cheerful soul brings joy to others. Laughter is one of the best medicines so live, love, and laugh often.
Enjoy success with these three bones that give hope, convictions and joy in this fallen world.
