Months ago I sent this quote below to a friend who was going through some difficulties hoping it will give her some perspective on life. I also saved the same quote for myself on my desktop. Ever since that day, whenever I feel defeated or when something doesn't go my way, I read it...It gives that little dose of reassurance we all need from time to time. Hope it helps you too when you feel vulnerable.
“Life will break you. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.” - Louise Erdrich
Btw: How are you today?
P.P.S: Life lessons.
