I just stumbled across this quote from Albert Einstein, “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”
I have been thinking much about hope lately, as people I know well are struggling to keep hope alive. And with the recent loss of Robin Williams – someone who’s brought happiness to so many for so long – people everywhere see that it is such a sad outcome when one loses hope completely.
The Quiet and Strong blog came about because, through my own struggles, I have learned many great lessons and have become stronger. I do believe that we do grow and become better as we face our various challenges in life. This is part of my belief system that does give me hope for a better day tomorrow and in the future.
I’m certainly not addressing clinical depression or other similar illnesses here, and I do understand that many have gone through much darker times than I could ever imagine. However, I think that in general, having hope that the future will be brighter will help most of us get through the daily troubles we might perceive as introverts.
“No Matter How Bad It Is, Or How Bad It Gets, I’M GOING TO MAKE IT.” – Les Brown
I am so encouraged by the help that is out there. I have been helped so much, particularly with understanding introversion, by reading the stories and wisdom from those that have overcome obstacles. As I write, I continue to find such useful material in others blogs, twitter feeds, and Facebook posts. There is so much great information available in books, the internet, and YouTube. I hope that I am adding to this great body of knowledge.
There is a quote from Les Brown I repeat to myself when times seems tough, “No Matter How Bad It Is, Or How Bad It Gets, I’M GOING TO MAKE IT.”
