“To reach a port, we must sail—Sail, not tie an anchor—Sail, not drift.”
It may be true that life didn’t knock, but rather walked in and made itself at home. That may mean altering your journey in a very big way. In this case, it’s a big bump in the road, but it is not the end of the road. If you throw your anchor, you will live in this pain. If you just drift to and fro, you might never come out the other side. However, if you fill your sails and set a course, you will heal and find happiness again.
