The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
Your life is whirling around you, and you feel dizzy and ready to fall. Now is the time to look for support. Find some firm ground to stand on, and then reach out and ask others to stand beside you to help maintain your balance.
When you were a child and whirled around a post you kept a firm grip on it so that no matter how fast you were going or how many times you circled, you had support and did not fall. Remember that in your life; get a firm grip and then start whirling.
Your support post can be many different things or people. Once it is in place, you will be ready for whatever may throw you off balance. So be sure it is anchored well and that you are firmly supported by the people in your life.
Get a grip and enjoy the merry-go-round of life.
