It's really difficult to come back from some of the crazy, curve ball black eyes we get in life sometimes. Throughout most of my life, I was able to bounce back from just about anything. I never worried, I didn't ever second guess myself. I was always positive that the "next thing", that proverbial opening door after the one that closes, was going to be even better than the last.
