The truth is that the last time we were faced with a difficult situation, where the odds seemed stacked against us and the problem insurmountable, we got through it, perhaps a little battered and bruised, but we survived to tell the tale. You might think that after seeing that achievement and how we ended up facing our fear and defeating it, we would be prepared for anything.
But no...well, not me anyway. And if you are anything like me, you'll know that as we face these challenging times, every single ounce of our beings feels overwhelmed, strung out, and tempted to panic. Even with our good track record, we struggle to draw logical conclusions. Instead, our present trouble tends to swamp those other more realistic perspectives.
But now, more than ever, our memories matter. Remembering past victories is critical to helping us trust in the present and be better prepared for the future. Remind a mate today not to forget to remember.
