Adversity comes in many forms. We all have or will face an obstacle that seems daunting and overwhelming. Finding and developing the tools to cope sometimes takes a crisis for that needed strength to arrive. For Michael Merrgian, his adversity showed up on October 7, 2018 when he was struck by a car that nearly took his life. Shortly after being admitted in what would be a long hospital stay, Michael learned that doctors were unable to save his leg and he went home as an amputee. Rebuilding his life would not be easy, but the love and support from his family, friends, and his community all helped propel him forward and uncover his true strength. At first, the list of all things he couldn’t do raced through his mind. But over time, he began to create a list of all things he COULD still do. Listen in to Michael’s great message of how his positive spirit, perseverance, courage, resilience and strong faith have helped get to a place where he is now helping other people deal with their hurdles. He also is working on a book to share more of his story and his lessons learned. If you would like to see the video version of this podcast, view it here on YouTube.
