Thought for today

Tame the Tiger

I receive a ' thought for today' from Inner Space every day and decided this is a lovely one to share.

"Just as in 'The Life of Pi', there will be times when we have to live or wrestle with a tiger of our own.
The tiger in our lifeboat is our fears and anxieties. To tame the tiger:
1) Have faith in yourself.
2) Don't give in or give up hope.

Hope and you'll see what's needed to overcome your fears and anxieties. Have faith and you'll discover how amazing you really are."


Patience is a virtue and a power too. Patience tells us that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and we get over there one step at a time. Patience teaches us not to rush. Knowing that there is a reason and a season for everything, it enables us to smile at the challenges, realising that there is an answer to every problem. And, even though we cannot see it, yet there is an awareness that within every crisis lies an opportunity.

A good one for me to remember as I negotiate my new(ish) life in Somerset.
