We Did Not Want To Be Here. And Yet We Are

I was working on a post for this afternoon when I read this post by our friend Roger. After reading it, I set my own post aside for later, for this one begs to be shared.

As Legions Before Us. We Will Be Tested

This not grandstanding; nor doomsaying; nor least of all a rallying call. We are moving past all of that. We are in the place where Reality is demanding our choices. This is how it is.

  1. Thank you for sharing!!… you post brought to mind three quotes.. 🙂

    “Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come”. (Author Unknown)

    “Anyone can achieve their fullest potential… who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing. We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. Your destiny can’t be changed but, it can be challenged. Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one“. (-Martin Heidegger).. 🙂

    “Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do…” ( Pope John XXIII )… 🙂
