It has been a particularly stressful week for me.
So this week’s ‘Friday Favourite’ is a motivational poster I designed based on the words I read on one of the blogs I follow (I believe these words are originally from the book ‘Little Women’ by Louisa May Alcott). Mind you, I read these words a few weeks ago – so if we were to get technical, it wouldn’t really be this week’s ‘Friday Favourite’ but we won’t get technical. I kept thinking about the words this past week and in a way they helped me cope.
There will be hurdles in life, there will be times when crappy things happen all at once, times when you have to make difficult decisions and times when life just knocks the wind out of you. BUT. These things prepare you, they empower you and they make you appreciate the times when life is good. I believe we are only dealt the things we are able to handle and if you have dealt with more difficult things in life than your friends or family, rest assured you are a stronger person because of it.
So chin up! Sail your ship and sometimes try to enjoy the beauty of the storm.
