I stumbled upon this quote at the perfect time. I was just thinking today about an amazing opportunity I was afforded--and the possible job that is attached--and thought that had I still been in a relationship with the person I love deeply but was afraid to let go of, ever, I would be filled with fear at this prospect instead of embracing it. I instantly felt strange about that, I mean my ex is an amazing man and never did anything to hold me back, then I saw this quote:
When they are older and telling their own children about their grandmother, they will be able to say that she stood in the storm, and when the wind did not blow her way -- and it surely has not -- she adjusted her sails.
-Elizabeth Anania Edwards
