The Greeks have given us a wealth of folklore and myths that are full of meaning for our lives. Among them are stories of the Goddess Artemis and her human counterpart, Atalanta. Their myths are rich with complexity, just like life itself. They give us clues as to how to navigate the zig-zags of our life path. Bolen declares, “Everybody has setbacks, everybody has suffering, everybody loses and wins at certain times of their lives.” She advises us to not give up; to call on the strengths of the Artemis archetype is to persevere without becoming bitter. Bolen encourages us to persist with what gives our life meaning and purpose. You’ll be able to find your own connection with the grit and passion of Artemis in her refusal to give up while facing formidable foes. Greek myths help to illuminate the hero and heroine buried within. They give us inspiration to live into our fullness.
