It is usually because I am disappointed with myself, my circumstances, or someone else.
My role model for fixing “the flat” is Abraham Lincoln.
Talk about someone who had to keep going when things were terrible!
His son died in the war, his wife went crazy, his generals didn’t obey his commands, the destruction of war was unending, and many of the American people hated him. His heart must have been one big ache, but he kept his focus on what he could do, not what he couldn’t do, as indicated by this quote:
“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I have.”
That gives me hope.
