Wise words


In the quest for peaceful, restful sleep, I'm working on incorporating some new bedtime rituals into my life lately. Before bed, I read a little selection from the book: "Something More: Excavating Your Authentic Self" by Sarah Ban Breathnach. Last night I read the following selection. I hope you'll enjoy it, too:


Regardless of how we choose to look at our fears - whether we have caused our own problems or are simply caught in the snares of others', whether we are blindsided by a sudden crisis or have been running from one for a long time - we only have three choices:

1. Ignore it and hope it will go away. It won't.
2. Try and live with it. Not forever.
3. Look for the gift within our fear and benefit from it. When we do, we emerge on the other side of life, surprised by joy.

"Be joyful," the poet Wendell Berry encourages us. "Because it is humanly possible."
