Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?
I’m not a great believer in self-help books as occasionally they get caught up in religion. This doesn’t mean that I haven’t read any and actually I am taking my quote from one such book.
WHATEVER HAPPENS TO ME, GIVEN ANY SITUATION, I CAN HANDLE IT!
For those who don’t recognise this quote it comes from “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway®” by Dr Susan Jeffers.
I have often (mis)-quoted it to my family and friends in their darkest hours. I just say “Don’t worry, you can handle it!” Light words on the surface but when you think about it, haven’t YOU always handled it? Everything that life has thrown at you. Everything that knocked you down, hurt you, made you sob desperately. YOU HANDLED IT! Where are you now? Here! In the present day. Here and now! A little older, wiser and stronger. Happier and well, you’re here now. Reading this! That’s got to be good, hasn’t it?
