Desiderata Days ~ Spirit
April 5, 2010
My husband lost his job about eight years ago. For six months we didn’t know what we would do. As crazy as it sounds, I felt a lightening of spirit as I realized “Now we have been liberated to do what we truly want.” My husband cast me a quizzical look, but after many years of searching, we have truly found the reason for it all.
Everything happens for a reason, even in the worst of times. Max Ehrmann says:
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
While I disliked the idea of uprooting my American self and landing in a Bavarian cow town after my husband found a new job, I made lemonade, looking at the bright side of things in the darkest of moments. Nurturing the strength of spirit will help guide you when times are tough. Let it be your shining light in the storm.
