“Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors.” – Proverb
I have posted so many rants and anecdotes about what’s not worked and what’s been difficult to deal with, that it only seems right that I should let you in on the wonderful in my life.
It reminds of the quote about the lotus flower needing the mud. In order to grow and be beautiful, it requires a little mud and a little rain. And thus, so do our lives.
What makes my life awesome right now is:
My official acceptance letter for university arrived yesterday. weeeee!
I got the job I’ve been wanting for a year!
Dear B. and I are taking our dates to the gym and it’s really eliciting some lovely results.
My neurological tests are slowly coming back to show the seizures/fainting spells I suffered which made me housebound in the winter are anomalies! No chronic illness to indicate more seizures. Phew!
It’s raining today and I LOOOOOVE the rain and cool weather 🙂
What’s making your life awesome? Are you in your period of adversity before the triumph??
In honour of triumph over adversity, some quotes!
“There is no education like adversity” – Benjamin Disraeli
“It is under the greatest adversity that there exists the greatest potential for doing good, both for oneself and others.”
We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival.
To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.
Peace and wellness to you, my blog friends, monkiss
