Thought for the Week – Foundation in Adversity


Last week’s Thought for the Week, was about “Will to Take Action” and how if we really want to do something, we’ll find a way. If we don’t, we’ll find an excuse. I hope you found that thought-provoking and I welcome any comments. [You can find previous posts here in my blog]

Sadly, with the terrible events happening in our World today, each of us is affected to different degrees and in different ways; directly or more sub-consciously. If you or your loved ones are directly impacted, my heart goes out to you. There are just no words or thoughts that would be adequate at this time.

For the rest of us. We feel helpless and look for things we can do, however small, to make a difference in some way. And it is heart-warming to see how people come together in the face of adversity.

So, I have been really soul-searching about the Thought for the Week this time and it came to me that, actually, it is the simplest things in life that often bring us the most comfort …

  • Peace
  • Freedom
  • Safety
  • Family
  • Home
  • Love
  • Purpose
  • Trust and Faith

Whatever your role is in life, high-flying, humble, “middle-of-the-road”, or however you see it, at least one or two of these will be foundation stones in your life. And these will have carried you through the hardest times.

It is remarkable to see the resilience and sheer strength of spirit amongst the people of Ukraine who are losing everything around them. An inspiration to us all.

“It is not the beauty of a building you should look at; it’s the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time!
