There’s not much I can say that’s positive about the recent plane crash in the Alps, which has claimed 150 lives.
But I am reminded at moments like this of the teachings of Viktor Frankl.
A survivor of the holocaust, he wrote many papers and books, among them, Man’s search for meaning which has always been an inspiration to me.
I’m not a book reviewer, but in essence, it says: you can’t always control what happens to you, but you can usually control what you do about it.
– And if you cant do that, at least you can control the conclusions you reach from the situation.
There must be people sitting at home saying I’ll never fly again. That’s one conclusion, and they are perfectly entitled to it.
For me, it says life is a rare, short and precious gift. Don’t wast a moment, go out in search of adventure, as you dont know when fate will close its door.
My deepest regrets to the families and loved ones of the 150.
The search for adventure continues (but sometimes at a higher cost than we’d like)…
