“Although extraordinary valor was displayed by the entire corps of Spartans and Thespians, yet bravest of all was declared the Spartan, Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that the Persian archers were so numerous that, their arrows would block out the sun. Dienekes, however, undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, ‘Good. Then we will fight in the shade.'”
I don’t like wars and other violence but I see much beauty and inspiration in this quote here.
The concept of not giving up when there are obstacles, not to succumb to negative thinking.
There’s almost always a bright side and if not, we can still be positive about it.
Just this strong conviction of mine is liberating and deeply inspiring.
Even when I don’t currently feel it, I always believe it.
We cannot always choose our circumstances or even always choose our emotions at this moment, but we can choose positive thoughts and actions that become a habit or strengthen our already optimistic/positive nature.
We can empower ourself with positivity!
Thank you to anyone who has written me comments recently! I will get to them shortly! I appreciate every single one! I’m at work now working two shifts!
Much love & light,
