During her eight years in the White House, first lady Michelle Obama's resolve has been tested again and again. How does she manage to preserve a positive attitude?
"You know, the bad stuff I just don't hold on to," she says.
A better way to handle things, the first lady continues, is to "keep it moving," a lesson her mother always imparted. "We, as black women, better be able to do it," she says, "because there's so much that comes at us all the time. Every day. In subtle ways that could tear your soul apart if you let it."
