If you want to succeed in your life, remember this phrase: That past does not equal the future. Because you failed yesterday; or all day today; or a moment ago; or for the last six months; the last sixteen years; or the last fifty years of life, doesn’t mean anything… All that matters is: What are you going to do, right now?
Jonathan Franzen, The Corrections
Now all you can do is wait. It must be hard for you, but there is a right time for everything. Like the ebb and flow of tides. No one can do anything to change them. When it is time to wait, you must wait.
If you feel lost, hesitant, disappointed or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.
