Memories of Misfortune – Not All Bad!

April 23, 2012 Deborah Wilbrink

“If I have learned anything, I owe it neither to precepts nor to books, but to a few opportune misfortunes.” So wrote an 18th century Frenchwoman, Louise Honrine de Choiseul. Perfect Memoirs are not about perfect people, perfect lives, for there are none. Life’s lessons sometimes seem planned, but not alway planned by the learner!  And without those mistakes, misfortunes and chances, we are different people, pallid imitations of the self. Embrace change!
