“Rivers know this: There is no hurry. We shall get there someday.”
A. A. Milne (Winnie the Poo)
When we realise there is little in life that can be controlled. We can begin to accept the way things are. The way the sun rises and sets each day. How the seasons come and go. The clouds that drift across the sky. The way rivers flow.
All that is frightening and confusing will someday pass. Worry and anxiety fades when we appreciate the here and now. Let go of expectations. Show gratitude for all that we have. Trust that time will carry us forward. Be calm, patient and fluid just like water.
(Best wishes to everyone in self-isolation during this difficult time)
