It’s that time of the year again – the swiss army is calling. However, it’s for the last time so it’s simply the last part of the 6 years of advanced training in the military. It’s been a long time when I think about the 3-4 weeks each year after finishing the basis course but you learn a lot in the same time. The military in Switzerland is not about the same as it is in other countries as we’re luckely not in a critical situation.
As the old saying goes: Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadow. Why? Well, that’s easy, isn’t it? If you face the sun, the shadow lies behind you and not next or even in front of you. And I totally agree with that. But it’s normal to see the shadow from time to time. And it’s not a bad thing at all. I think we sometimes even need to see the shadow to grow. And otherwise we take all the good things we’ve got and receive for granted.
