Like an egg transforms into a beautiful butterfly, the aim of this blog is to help bring about a change for the better in the lives of those who read these posts. A lot of the posts are presented by Mrs. Sangeeta Hegde; simple stories from which she draws out a moral. I also post uplifting stories from various other sources.

It's Loving Your Fate ...
“Nietzsche was the one who did the job for me. At a certain moment in his life, the idea came to him of what he called ‘the love of your fate.’
Whatever your fate is, whatever the hell happens, you say, ‘This is what I need.” It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a challenge.
If you bring love to that moment—not discouragement—you will find the strength is there. Any disaster that you can survive is an improvement in your character, your stature, and your life. What a privilege!
This is when the spontaneity of your own nature will have a chance to flow. Then, when looking back at your life, you will see that the moments which seemed to be great failures followed by wreckage were the incidents that shaped the life you have now.
You’ll see that this is really true. Nothing can happen to you that is not positive. Even though it looks and feels at the moment like a negative crisis, it is not. The crisis throws you back, and when you’re required to exhibit strength, it comes.” Joseph Campbell
I’ve learned that when one of these quotes “says it all” I should simply go silent.
So I will.
With love and respect,
