Something To Guide Us Through Good and Bad Times
Once in a while, we come across words of wisdom that seem to fit perfectly with your situation. For me, I came across this one a few times before. All were tough times. However this one applies to good times just as well.
A king tasked wise men to come up with a phrase that applies to all times & situations. Good & bad ones. They came back with this sentence:
“This Too Shall Pass”
The king was humbled by the words. These words of wisdom have been built into stories and folklore songs for different cultures (with variation in the story and its characters of course). A variation of it was even used in a speech by Abraham Lincoln.
This quote reminds me to focus on what I can control during tough times instead of worrying. It also teaches me to remain humble during good times and not get complacent.
It helps me see the big picture and savor life. I hope it does the same for you.
Everything in life is transient, so don’t get caught up in the ups and downs.
I created a wallpaper for it (here’s the full sized version). Feel free to use it and share it with someone you think will benefit from it.
