(I’ll keep it short)
…What do you do when things go completely haywire? Plans fail, people bail, and you’re left with yourself? What do you do when you are discouraged, filled with doubt and despair? What do you do when the dream (work, relationship, family, startup, whatever your dream is) you’ve worked and sacrificed for becomes an utter nightmare? What do you do when you feel trapped in a rat race, or trapped in a hopeless situation? You stand...
I don’t mean standing in the literal sense. I mean stand stand [sic]! (How our grandmothers, mothers, and aunts did)..You don’t lose faith, face, or hope. Exercising faith is essential in that very moment; not when everything is working out. Faith becomes essential when you are in that dark crucible and you can’t see a way out...That’s when you exercise faith! When you realize that amidst the fleeting things of this world which don’t define you, there is a faith that gives you hope. As La Bruyere (French philosopher) would say, “out of difficulties grow miracles”. This is just a moment that you will evolve from. Your narrative is being rewritten… and the story will be beautiful… so stand.
