Yes….it is THAT day!

Mes Amis,

You know of what I speak!  That day when you are at the peak of your powers in life, when you assemble your Marshals and Colors to deal with foes that seem intractable!  Everyone warned you about them; you heeded them not!  You knew what glories awaited you!  You knew what strength of will, what courage, what esprit, what — dare I say it! — joie de vivre brought you to this field for this, your greatest of triumphs!

A mere 210 years ago, on this very day, Napoleon led La Grande Armee to that greatest triumph Austerlitz.

I always use this day as a beacon to look forward.  Much has been poor for me for a long time….perhaps I have lived on my Elba already!  But I can’t give up on life when so manypositives are on the horizon.  I wish all of you that same vision in your life….do not merely endure; Triumph!

 

Addendum:  As you can now see… I embrace the concept fully!

    But the war must be fought before it can be won.
