“The most glorious moments in your life are not the so-called days of success, but rather those days when out of dejection and despair you feel rise in you a challenge to life, and the promise of future accomplishments.” ~ Gustave Flaubert
I was going to make a joking post about despair today because of the seemingly interminable winter we’re having here in the US’s northeast, but then I found this quote, and I like it so much better.
What a joyous thought! And how true. We’ve all had those terrible, heart-wrenching days that bring us to our knees, but while we’re down there, we feel something stir. Some spark ignites, maybe not into a full flame, but enough to get us back up off our knees and ready to try again.
So next time you’re on the floor, remember that there’s still hope.
