In your life, there will be moments that touch your heart and others that break it. There will be ones that make you laugh and others that reduce you to tears. There will be moments when you feel invincible and others when it feels as if a stiff wind could blow you over. In our darkest hours, and in the midst of our greatest losses, it’s important that we don’t lose ourselves. The thing about the crucible that’s impossible to realize and recognize while you’re in the midst of it is that nothing will make you stronger. We are greater than any of our losses.
If we seem time as scarce, we become impatient. And our impatience has consequences that are often detrimental. This often tends to happen as people get older. They worry that time is running out. Good decisions about life are rarely the result of being concerned that time is running out.
