Blogging on The Brightside

"I think I can. I think I can. I think I can." -The Little Engine That Could

“There is a saying in Tibetan, ‘Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.’ No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that’s our real disaster.”

Tibetan Prayer Flags. So colorful. So full of hope and promise.

At some point today, when you may not feel particularly hopeful, whether it is coming to terms with something painful or digging yourself out from the rut you have found yourself in, I want you to stop, close your eyes, and picture these flags. As they wave in the wind, I want you to picture these bright colors taking over the space you had saved for worry or hurt. Cast your worries into the wind. Let them go.

Let your difficulties and tragedies make you stronger, not harder.

Today is a day for change. Today is a day to let go over hostility, pride, or anger. Replace that with hope.
