Providence moves in more ways than one! Before I got married I had a poster stuck on the back of my bathroom door which I used to look at every day. And then I moved house and lost it! It was something that had quite a profound impact on me so I was totally thrilled when I came across the quotation in a book I’m currently reading.
I can totally vouch for the truth that’s contained within this quotation. Read and reflect on it carefully. And may it help you make decisions and move forward in your life – even and particularly when, the future isn’t clear.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back — concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” (Goethe)
