‘Difficulty’ is the name of an ancient tool that was created purely to help us define who we are.
And when everything seems dark, and we feel alone and helpless, we won’t look back, for fear of seeing the changes that have taken place in our soul. We will look ahead.
We will not fear what happens tomorrow, because yesterday we had someone watching over us.
And that same Presence will remain at our side.
That Presence will shelter us from suffering.
Or will give us the strength to face it with dignity.
– Manuscript found in Accra, Paulo Coelho
