"Tidal waves illustrate all there is to say about life in general. They represent our 'hellos' and 'goodbyes' from day to day. Their ebb and flow mirrors our breathing in and out of all our activity. When life threatens to overwhelm us, our choices are to either surf its towering waters or go under and drown in the depths of its despair.
Take note from the sea of life. Never give up, for there will surely be a moment of time and place when the tide will turn for the good and change our destiny. I believe today to be such a day for Great Britain.
While I am naturally pleased that Britain voted to Leave the European Union, I recognise the disappointment, apprehension and even fear that many Remain voters will undoubtedly feel right now. They probably have an image in their mind about a future Britain outside the European Union which frightens them. If that is so, the only way out of this negative mental trap is to change that image and replace it with a more positive one that accords with the new reality of the dawn. This process of mental shift is the basis of all stress reduction, transcendental meditation and relaxation methods.
As I said in my post two days ago, living in a new world necessitates facing our fears and learning to believe in ourselves and learning to believe in our country once more. If this doesn't put a tiger back in your tank, it will undoubtedly put some national pride and bite back in your British bulldog spirit. As a born and bred Irishman who has lived in England most of my life, I have not felt prouder to consider myself British for many a long year than I do today. I look forward to the challenges ahead and the national prosperity that successfully facing and overcoming them can bring ourselves, our children and grandchildren. I also look forward to the English football team winning the European Cup!" William Forde: June 24th, 2016.
