At a conference in L.A.recently, the emcee opened the meeting by reading Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes profound essay, "Do No Lose Heart: We Were Made For These Times." If you're not already familiar with her inspiring piece, please check it out. It is full of hope-building insights such as...
"In any dark time, there is a tendency to veer toward fainting over how much is wrong or un-mended in the world. Do not focus on that. That is spending the wind without raising the sails.
"There will always be times ...when you feel discouraged. I too have felt despair in my life, but I do not keep a chair for it; I will not entertain it. It is not allowed to eat from my plate."
