Happy Monday my friends,
While preparing this week’s letter I came upon this inspirational note that had such an impact on me I am hoping it does for you as well.
A BALANCE IN LIFE
“There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year’s course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” (Carl Gustac Jung)
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we never had a problem or a bad day? And yet the sunshine after a storm is often brighter and more pleasurable than the sunshine after a string of cloudless days. Happiness that follows a troubled time can be more intense-or at least more appreciated-than happiness in the midst of an easy time.
NOTE TO SELF
If I feel like things are not going well right now, I’ll think about how good it’s going to feel when I get through this-and I will get through this.
Nature does not hurry, and yet all things are accomplished. (Taoist proverb)
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
To be happy you must: Let go of what’s gone. Be grateful for what remains. Look forward to what’s coming next. (Lessons Learned in Life)
Wishing everyone a wonderful week,
