CFAME Connection is introducing a fresh way of ending the week. Friday Reflection will be added as an ongoing theme to remind readers to pause and take a deep breath after a busy week.
Quotes have become ubiquitous in social media venues. We are engaged by the wordsmithing and identify with the messages that are captured in short phrases. Quotes span centuries, from the ancient time of Horace: “Begin, be bold and venture to be wise” to Maya Angelou of our century: “I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.”
Knowing others have overcome challenges gives courage to embrace the unknown possibilities and opportunities waiting around the corner.
So, without further ado, this is your Friday Reflection. A special thank you to Barbara Maynard for the photo entitled: An art installation on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere in Nova Scotia.
