LOOKING FORWARDS


This evening I have been to a school awards evening. The guest speaker was a person who had survived adversity and in so doing, and with the help of family and friends, had striven to take on new and more demanding challenges. His advice to students will have a particular resonance for many readers of this blog for he stressed that life's unexpected traumas can be the seeds from which to achieve greater things and that there is no point looking backwards, only forwards where your future lies.
