Midwives of the Soul

My grandmother once gave me a tip:In difficult times, you move forward in small steps.Do what you have to do, but little by little.Don’t think about the future, or what may happen tomorrow.Wash the dishes.Remove the dust.Write a letter.Make a soup.You see?You are advancing step by step.Take a step and stop.Rest a little.Praise yourself.Take another step.Then another.You won’t notice, but your steps will grow more and more.And the time will come when you can think about the future without crying.- Elena Mikhalkova
