Everyone faces difficulties in life. How you deal with those challenges can be as important as the hardships you face. This week’s Sixes highlighted how attitude (“The key is laughing at yourself”) and perspective (“Broken pieces make up beautiful mosaics.”) influence your outlook. Although some adversity tests our limits (“Heart aches from carrying a mattress.”), Sixers know we are compelled to overcome. –Shauna Greene
