Shooting Arrow – Wednesday Wisdom 17

Shooting Arrow – Wednesday Wisdom 17

There’s no escaping from the fact that I’ve had a testing few weeks. I’ve touched on it here, on Wednesday Wisdom. I’ve discussed the stress, the tiredness and everything in between and I hardly dare say it, but I do believe we’re coming out of the other side of this crazy rollercoaster month that I’ve had. Thank goodness.

In an attempt to reintroduce some positivity back into Wednesday Wisdom, I bring you a quote this week that I have totally fallen in love with. It needs no explanation, and not a great deal of thought. It spoke to me and I really hope it speaks to you too.

Quite simply…

“An arrow can only be shot by pulling backwards. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great”

So for all the shitty, crappy and downright miserable times you may be having or experiencing, take it that better times are still to come. Something great will be around the corner. After all, we have to experience the bad to appreciate the good, don’t we?

Have a great week everyone. Don’t forget to go shoot an arrow or two! See you next week.
