Cure #1 for Postpartum Divorce – Part 1 – Find a Boat

“Hard times build determination and inner strength. Through them we can also come to appreciate the uselessness of anger. Instead of getting angry, nurture a deep caring and respect for troublemakers because by creating such trying circumstances, they provide us with such invaluable opportunities to practice tolerance and patience.”

The Dalai Lama

Boats are  metaphors for life. They carry us through fair and foul sailing weather. If we are willing to seek  and reflect they will reveal the answers that dwell deep within ourselves.
