His personal motto is: “Life is a marathon, so let’s train for it!”
Most of his inspiration for that motto comes from the 12th chapter of the book of Hebrews, in the Bible. He considers himself in the race of life for the long run, and training for the ups and downs that will come whether or not he’s ready for them–so he’s always trying to be ready!
Bruce has had many painful experiences and setbacks in his life, but he’s also received many unexpected and undeserved blessings.
Bruce has learned, along the way, that he cannot control many things about his life, but we can control how we respond to everything. Bruce had spent a good portion of his adult life simply reacting from day to day, situation to situation. He knows now how it feels when just getting through the day is a good day. He’s also learned that living that way was a choice he was making, not something that was being forced upon him.
