— Eleanor Roosevelt
Earth spins at a thousand miles an hour. Our sun hauls its planets through space at 448,000 mph (720,000 km/h), taking 225 million years to circle its galaxy. Goodness knows what the Milky Way orbits and how long that takes. In time, the Atlantic will wear away the rocks in this post’s Featured Art. The setting sun will shine again.
While Eleanor Roosevelt is credited with saying, “This too shall pass,” the phrase is three thousand years older. Legend says those words were offered to a Persian monarch who wanted wisdom that would be true in all situations. Abraham Lincoln told this story about joy and sadness, failure and achievement in 1859.
So, how can life’s ups and downs be survived … more easily?
Zig Ziglar suggested evenly distributing time given to jobs, spiritual and intellectual growth, friendships, family, financial planning and physical care using his Wheel of Life.
Think of the circle below as a personal Wheel of Fortune rolling along life’s highways and byways. By staying centered, in the white hub, progress is possible without the ups and downs experienced on the rim.
Everything is great quality and well priced. What beautiful and inspiring fun! [As always, the art is available handsomely framed, on canvas and assorted, fine papers from my galleries.]I’m tickled to share my art as mouse pads, phone cases and shower curtains, as clocks, mugs, dresses, journals, greeting cards, leggings, socks and more.
