One analogy of life I like is people being like arrows. That more a bow is bent, the more potential is created. Life’s challenges are like bending of a bow. If you find your meaning in tradgery and put an arrow to put in the bow, there is potential. It is when you feel that you can not draw the string back more, that it will break, that you know that if you shoot now, the arrow can launch you into something great.
When the world falls apart around us, that`s when we must find new purpose. Sometimes it feels impossible, but that feeling of being torn in two, is just that. Feelings. Not truths.
