When I was undergoing chemotherapy and having a very rough time of it my sister sent me a bookmark that really impacted me at the time, and still does to this day. It is a photo of a man windsailing in high seas and winds, struggling to maintain his balance and upright position. The caption reads:
"We cannot control the wind, but we can adjust our sails."
It was the right message for me at the exact right moment. I share this with my friends and acquaintances who are going through challenges in their lives. By sharing it with all my Spark friends, I hope it also inspires, comforts or gives moment for pause.
Life really is good, and I choose to live each day with honor, integrity, compassion and joy.
