When I compare
What I have lost with what I have gained,
What I have missed with what attained,
Little room do I find for pride.
I am aware
How many days have been idly spent;
How like an arrow the good intent
Has fallen short or been turned aside.
But who shall dare
To measure loss and gain in this wise?
Defeat may be victory in disguise;
The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose.~Jim Elliott
We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
of the emotional baggage and the mental clutter we travel through life with….. allows us to focus on our
after gain, after gain naturally follow.
So let us be willing to gain what is sure to enhance the quality of our lives by letting go of everything that fails to serve us.
