The Wind In My Sails



“I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.” Louisa May Alcott


I often hear that we must deal from strength, and I believe it to be true. So many times when I’ve made decisions based on fear, my judgment has been faulty and they haven’t been good ones. Now I’m learning to tame my fears, even turn them over to God. I’m freer to make clear-headed decisions and remain flexible—but sure. It’s going to be a beautiful day.

  1. Your post today touched my heart. Louisa May Alcott was a childhood favorite of mine. As we navigate through a loved one’s recovery, relsose, recovery, we need to sail on.

    1. For sure! That’s what my recovery is all about: making the best of things and moving forward. Here’s another one of my favorite quotes—from Jennie Jerome Churchill: “Life is not always what one wants it to be. But to make the best of it as it is, is the only way of being happy.” Thanks for sharing, Kate.
