How to get on with life

This afternoon I was flipping through the September issue of Glamour magazine and read a fabulous article about Betty Halbreich, an 86 year old personal shopper at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City. Having worked in a major department store through the 1980s I found her story quite interesting and could relate to her experiences.

The most impressive part of the article is the final statement. It encapsulates so much truth. I only hope that the next time life tries to knock me over, I will be able to remember these words:

“So that’s how you do it. You get on with life by facing it.”

Thank you Ms. Halbreich. Wise words indeed!<a href=”https://echolaveaux.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/img_0507.jpg”&gt;IMG_0507.JPG
