McKenzie Bourg went from being a multi-sport all-star to almost dying of heart failure to being in the top 5 on “American Idol.”
He says: “Being so close to dying was the best thing that could’ve happened to me. I take every day for what it is, and I don’t think I would be here on that Idol stage had that not happened to me.”
When we’re in a bad place, it’s so hard to see that something good can come out of it. But I’ve seen exactly that happen for so many other people. I’ve experienced it for myself, too.
So if you’re struggling right now, please be kind to yourself. Keep your eyes open for anything that stirs your soul. And trust that amazing, unexpected things really can (and will!) come from whatever it is you’re going through.
