What to do when you get a bit swamped with it all…..

There is rather a lot on my plate right now and for me the best way of dealing with that is to quieten my mind and a gentle way forward will emerge.

So for today’s post I will borrow a saying that a good friend sent me recently as right now it is stopping me from getting swamped with fear.

“Risk more than others think is safe.
Care more than others think is wise.
Dream more than others think is practical.
Expect more than others think is possible.”

    The BESTEST of all BESTEST advice I have read this week, no kidding. See? Your getting swamped and only having time for this small verse is a HUGE blessing out here in Blogland, Jane! ALL things work together for them that love the Lord!

    My Dearest Jane,
    You are a woman of Beauty and Strength. That’s not to say that you won’t get scared silly. Or that you won’t feel completely lost from time to time. What it means is that you have the courage and heart to stand up and face whatever appears to be blocking your path. You boldly move that obstacle out of the way and keep moving forward. Life is full of surprises, and the best ones are yet to come.

    Many hugs my friend,

    Beautiful Jane, at risk of repeating myself, ‘everything you want is on the other side of fear’. Much love X

    Look after yourself

      Peter …other thoughts come to mind such as ‘This too shall pass’ and ‘If it wasn’t this it would be something else’ – here’s to a peaceful weekend x
