This too will Pass

I was taught these words by my grandmother as a phrase that is to be used at all times in your life. When things are spectacularly dreadful; when things are absolutely appalling; when everything is superb and wonderful and marvellous and happy – say these four words to yourself.

They will give you a sense of perspective and help you also to make the most of what is good and be stoical about what is bad.

This too will pass.
