There is a beautiful action that is your option in every moment, every season. That is in fact the only time you can be glorious. You can be a great human being in a hellish time. You can apologize. You can contend with the results of your own stupidity or someone else’s. You can deal with the garbage left behind by someone else. You can hold your tongue. You can act with fear clawing at your back. It is not the circumstance that makes a glorious moment, it’s what happens next. That is a beautiful moment. You make that moment.
And if you fail don’t worry…. That test will come around again until you pass it.
