Keep Calm and Carry on!
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “By Heart.”
This quote or poem by Churchill helped me immensely in a very difficult time a few years ago. I felt very intimidated and misunderstood by a boss at my job over some years in fact and at the height of the crisis I had a Half Marathon in London. I managed that even without sleep for days.
I have my routine in London of going to the same places that I love. One of them is Tate Gallery a wonderful art gallery based on Turners paintings from the Romantic period. I found the museum first time when I was 20 years old and visiting London alone and with very little money.
In their museum shop I found a little book with the quote on it. It was before it went viral in all its varieties. In the book I wrote down words of comfort, mostly from the bible and the words became very personal and were like anchors to life, feeling I was losing hold of it.
