Dedication:    “To every person who has struggled, fought, and persevered while striving to live their lives.”

In the Introduction  the question is posed:  Who is a survivor?  The simple answer is Everyone.  I can’t think of a single soul who would be unable to relate.

“Every person becomes a survivor when they are faced with situations they must overcome, whether it be an illness, a relationship, financial hardships, bad breakups, a death, or graduating from school.  Everyday we all survive something; even a bad day at work is survival – it comes down to our own personal relevance.”

There are some suggestions of ways these cards can be used, but the one I liked best is to use the deck as a daily motivational tool.   I, for one, find the cards to be very motivational and relevant in facing my day to day challenges.  Each of the 44 cards carry a beautiful message and can deliver a “pep-talk”; show you options and advice; uplift your spirit; and just remind you of the important things in life.

These are a few of my favorites.  Be sure to click on the image for a larger view.
