Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.
Saint Francis de Sales
One of the things that I think about is how events shape the course of our lives. Sometimes these events are horrific and the inclination is to wish they’d never happened but I think if not for that… this.
With the passing of time though sometimes we realize that the event was a catalyst setting the stage for something incredible to happen.
I think it’s important to remember this and stay in the moment as much as possible, no matter how difficult the situation. We don’t know what lies just ahead.
