“Anyone can give up; it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone would expect you to fall apart, that’s true strength.”

– Chris Bradford

At work or at home, alone or with others, there are a lot of forces out there tearing us apart on a daily basis. Collectively apart, and Individually apart, too. Is there no end to the surging stream of crises, catastrophes and challenges? Yes, there is an end: it comes soon after your firm decision – your solemn commitment to yourself – that you have whatever it takes to keep it together when so much seems to be shattered. Planting your two feet firmly into the ground of your faith in yourself, held firmly in place by your values, your loved ones, and your knowledge that you’ve always had the strength to overcome so many other past traumas, and that today you have that strength – in fact, more strength than ever before – to once again get you through your present and future challenges. Whatever “glue” you’ve always used to manage to keep yourself together in the past is still there now, in your heart and soul, or wherever you store yours. Yes, it is still there, and stronger than ever before.

Credit for this quote goes out to someone from Beatty, Oregon, who anonymously wrote that “Fire, rains, Covid . . . we’re just waiting for the locusts.” Surely he or she was not complaining about what’s happening, but instead issuing a challenge to “the sky” that she or he is “ready for that, too.” Our prayers go out to you, your family and your community. Your quote is a true gift to us all!!
