Against all odds.

I have decided that “against all odds” is something I’m going to add to statements about goals I’ve accomplished. In the same way that when you read a fortune cookie, you add the phrase “in bed” to make it more humorous, I’m adding that phase to make the statement more accurate.

From what I have read, it seems that all writers could do this. Personally, it gives me a sense of fortitude that I didn’t think I possessed.

There is this great line in a song by VNV Main that says, “though the past, the unwanted memories are holding on to you, truth you find through your adversity with defend you, as all the powers in the universe conspire to carry you.”

I find this to be such a great reminder in so many ways. I’d rather not say exactly what it means to me. What does it mean to you?
