A Solid Foundation

(image placeholder)

A Solid Foundation...
Life is busy and the world is complex. Give yourself time to take it all in.
Events come at you quickly, and keep coming all the time. Regularly give yourself the time and space to make sense of it all.
When you get too caught up in your efforts, you can lose track of why you're making them. Take the time, again and again in the midst of it all, to remember why you do what you do.
Keep yourself connected to the reality of who you are. Don't allow yourself to be defined by the events that come and go, for that would leave you with nothing solid to hold on to.
Cultivate and nurture a part of yourself that can rise above whatever may come. Then you will have a powerful perspective from which to deal with it all.
Make sure your life has a solid foundation in what is real, in what is lasting, in what is meaningful to you. And then nothing will have the power to overwhelm you for long.
