Chapter 10, Page 20, Book 16


Press on.
Obstacles are seldom the same size tomorrow
as they are today.

Robert Schuller

October 20th - time changes everything

Time brings an end to everything. We should not mistake for a tragedy what is no more than the passage of time.

Robert Brault

This too shall pass is a famous line often said by people when going through tough situations. If you’ve lived long enough, you begin to realize that there are cycles in life and whether it’s rosy or grim, change is going to  happen.  If you are coasting right now, with life feeling sweet and rich with meaningful work and good connections with family and friends, savor it. 

Remember always to stay focused on the positives instead of the negatives. No matter what obstacles have come my way, staying positive has allowed me to overcome them.  I’ve learned to be happy no matter what happens, because change is a big part of life. 

Nothing remains forever, everything is passing, rising and decaying, appearing and vanishing in this whirlwind of time. 


Memorable Moment:  Beautiful October day in the 70’s

Such a pretty fall day picture. So true to stay focused on the positives. Easy to get wrapped up in the negatives during tough times. Definitely good to remember in tough times this too willl pass, it usually does.

The quote of Schuller in the beginning HIT ME:
Obstacles are seldom the same size tomorrow
as they are today.

Ain't it the truth. We humans seldom remember that, but it is so true.

Enjoyed the read and picture as an illustration, good stuff. THANKS
