I share optimistic & constructive books from writers committed to excellence in litterature. My favorites books leave me with a sense of lightness and freedom in my heart. "To love is to act" (Victor Hugo)
My employer placed me in an intense internal conflict on a day, between my job and accompanying my husband to America for something very important. I reached a point when the conflict became unbearable, but then I remembered this quote from 'The Seeker of Well-Being' by Indrajit Garai:
“External conflicts we can avoid, resolve, or manage. But, when it comes to internal conflicts, there is only one viable option: resolve. Whatever internal conflict, major or minor, we don't resolve will grate within us nonstop.
Fortunately, we can resolve all our internal conflicts with one simple strategy: Act the way it feels right, no matter how inconvenient the consequences are.”
For me, my husband is far more important than my job. So, I looked at my employer in her eyes and told her: "I will be in that plane with my husband on that day, and nothing can stop me." She looked at me in the eyes, and let me go on that trip.
A Bonus: Since that day, this employer has a lot more respect for me.
A special thank to this wonderful book ..
