20 sec reading: talking to my angel

Author: Paulo Coelho

Nobody is courageous all the time. The unknown is a constant challenge, and being afraid is part of the journey.

What to do?
Talk to yourself. Talk alone.

Talk to yourself even if others think you have gone crazy.
As we talk, an inner force gives us the security to overcome the obstacles that need to be surmounted.
We learn lessons from the defeats that we are bound to suffer.
And we prepare ourselves for the many victories that will be part of our life.

And just between you and me, those who have this habit (and I’m one of them) know that they never talk alone: the guardian angel is there, listening and helping us to reflect.
