Not meaning to depress you on a Monday morning, apparently it is easier to take the ‘hard knocks of life on the chin’, if we believe, suffering helps us to become enlightened!
Viktor Frankl ( 1905- 1997 )Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry developed a therapy for wonderful mental health, which he called ‘Logotherapy‘, after his survival in the concentration camps of Auschwitz and Dachau.In his book Man’s Search for Meaning he describes the atrocities that he experienced in the camps and goes on to explain that ‘if there is meaning in life at all, then there must be meaning in suffering’ He also said, ‘ Those who have a why to live, can bear almost any how‘
Something serious for us to think about on this wet Monday Morning.
Have a great one you guys
Hugs and love,
And if you do not believe me
Stop what you are doing right now
Look up at the sky
There not a cloud in sight!
Have a great Monday You guys,
Hugs and love,
You come quietly into my private world and let me be
You really try to understand me when I do not make sense
You don’t take the problem from me but trust me to deal with it in my own
You give me enough room to discover for myself why I feel upset and enough time to think for myself what is best
You allow me the dignity of making my own decisions even though you feel I am wrong
You don’t tell that funny story you are just bursting to tell me
You allow me to make my experience one that really matters
You accept my gratitude by telling me it is good to know I have been helped
You realise that the hour I take from you leaves you a bit tired and drained
You grasp my point of view even when it goes against your sincere convictions
You accept me as I am warts and all
You don’t offer me religious solace when you sense I am not ready for it
You look at me, feel for me, and really want to know me
You spend a short, valuable time with me and make me feel it is for ever
You hold back your desire to give good advice ( Anonymous)
Just a thought for a Monday morning and what a beautiful morning it is!
Have a great one you guys,
Hugs and Love,
