“Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.”Helen Keller
There’s a wonderful sense of optimism in that statement worth recalling now and again. Our worlds are shattered many times over throughout our lifetimes, even if in relative terms, but devastating nevertheless. Be it our first heartbreak, our first unexpected loss or rejection, letting go of someone or something dear to us, moving away from close friends or family, and sometimes events much, much worse. Yet through the wreckage we somehow manage to dust ourselves off and piece our lives back together again as best we can. Maybe not how we might have imagined our ideal world, but brighter than when the storm first hit.
