It was Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling who said:
“And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.”
This was first uttered when Rowling was working on Harry Potter, out of money, out of work and recently divorced.
Rowling reiterated this message in a 2008 speech at Harvard.
Rock bottom sure doesn’t feel good, but it IS good.
It means there is nowhere left to fall and all this wonderful space in which to rebound.
In doing research for my book, it amazed me how many people were this close to giving up when they felt they hit rock bottom, but they persisted and endured.
There is nowhere left to go but up.
