We shall steer safely through every storm, so long as our heart is right, our intention fervent, our courage steadfast, and our trust fixed on God. If at times we are somewhat stunned by the tempest, never fear. Let us take breath, and go on afresh.
~ St. Francois de Sales (1567-1622)
Hold On Tightly
Hold on tightly to what is truly important in life.
Hold on to faith. It is the source of believing that all things are possible. It is fiber and strength of a confident soul.
Hold on to hope. It banishes doubt and enables attitudes to be positive and cheerful.
Hold on to trust. It is at the core of fruitful relationships that are secure and content.
Hold on to love. It is life’s greatest gift of all, for it shares, cares, and gives meaning to life.
Hold on to family and friends. They are the most important people in your life, and they make the world a better place. They are your roots and the beginnings that you grew from; they are the vine that has grown through time to nourish you, help you on your way, and always remain close by.
Hold on to all that you are and all that you have learned, for these things are what make you unique. Don’t ignore what you feel and what you believe is right and important; your heart has a way of speaking louder than your mind.
Hold on to your dreams. Achieve them diligently and honestly. Never take the easy way or surrender to deceit. Remember others on your way and take time to care for their needs. Enjoy the beauty around you. Have the courage to see things differently and clearly. Make the world a better place one day at a time, and don’t let go of the important things that give meaning to your life.
