“A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.”
― Paul Klee
We're here for such a brief period of time.
Born one day, gone (almost) the next.
Somewhere in the mix, we try our best.
We honestly do.
Some achieve great things — apparently — whilst others, well, they live in the shadows or off the radar but they're no less human.
But, whatever your journey, and based on my experience and mine alone, we're stronger, much stronger than we know.
I don't mean in the obvious, anodyne sense of the word but in our ability to endure, to carry on and still function — as if (sometimes) we have a choice.
I realise how, too often, we can become fixated on a narrow definition of success or happiness but beneath all the roil and disturbance, there's something almost diamond-like in quality that never goes away.( Collapse )
