“When you encounter difficulties and contradictions,
do not try to break them, but bend them with gentleness and time”.
– Saint Francis de Sales

Sometimes the struggle is not struggles at all, sometimes it is the calm and gentle words of truth. Sometimes it doesn’t even take words, it’s in a feeling, it’s in our emotions, our body language. Sometimes the struggles we face in life just require us to do nothing but observe the world around is falling apart and rebuilding. Not all lesions we encounter in life are something we take part in.

“Do not attempt to conquer the world with force, for force only causes resistance”. – Lao Tzu

Remember your parents saying “if Johnny jumped off a bridge would you”? well I don’t know mom, depends why. (I was a sarcastic child) Was Jonny running from something or was he diving into the water below!

Life works the same way, we can run or we can dive and both have consequences. Just today I thought about a few situations I have faced in life, hard situations and how I could have handled them better, I tend to be a runner, maybe its time I start diving into what I run from

“A man who is a master of patience is master of everything else”.
– George Savile
