Lucy Van Pelt always Pulls away the Football as Charlie, me, is about to kick it. Though, only when we face down oblivion do the days seem brighter afterward. My life has had so many moments that I felt like I was about to finally get to kick the football, I lost count by now.

Whether it’s the diabetes, multiple sclerosis or now mom’s death, just when things are going to seem to be getting good it all disappears. Be it a life altering malady or death, life seemingly always takes a nasty turn for the worse. Finding the light in the darkness is the key.

Trust is the deposit of past promises kept and fulfilled, as many training courses teach. This is true in life too of courses and life. Using these tropes of management training courses and life can reveal some good outcomes.

My existence as real-life Charlie Brown is good for the most part, yet heartbreaking at others. The good far outweighs the bad, still having to pick up the pieces and carry does get old at times.

Doing this takes an amount of resilience, but my spirit has not failed yet!!
