Light Can Come Through Darkness

Don't confuse your path with your destination.  Just because it's stormy now doesn't mean you aren't headed for sunshine ~ Unknown

The quote above reminds me that no matter how dark and stormy the path looks at any given time that life does have a way of being sunny at times, it always finds a way.  The sunny times help to strengthen us so that we can get through the difficult times of our lives.  I know it's not easy... believe me, I know.  Life isn't easy and it isn't fair but there are rewards and good things happen to make it easier to handle. 

I want to be the kind of woman that looks at my life and is grateful for the strength that I have to overcome the dark times in my life.  I don't want the dark time to take over my life and make me bitter which will only leave me sad and alone.  I don't want the hard times to win out and break me down so much that I never see the sunny days... I want to look forward to those sunny times that get me through each difficult time.

Now that my days are coming into a sunny time, I can clearly see that I was in one of the darkest times of my life for the past eight months or so.  I didn't handle money well, I allowed my house to get out of control, I allowed myself to sit day after day in sadness because I felt there would never be a light again.  There is a light, there always is... even when we believe it won't happen.  However; sometimes the light comes and we are too deep in our sadness to see it, this is the saddest thing as we are given a light and we miss it because we are so engrossed in our disappointments.

I don't think it is wrong to be sad at times, it's only normal to feel down occasionally but we I really need to remember that these times won't last and that life will get better.  I may not have my hearts desire yet but I am truly blessed.

  1. It is hard when you are so sad that you can't see the light, but you are right, the light is always there. We just have to remember to keep looking for it. Have a nice weekend, Launna.

  2. It is remembering to try to notice even the smallest of light in the dark days. This for me has even been the beautiful autumn leaves colour on the trees or a bird singing outside the window. It is human to be sad and when hardship/suffering hits we can struggle as anyone would but holding onto hope and not becoming bitter are so important Launna as you said. I do not want to become bitter either. Blessings :-)

  3. Thank you Daisy and I hope you had a wonderful weekend too ;) I always remind myself daily that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, so that it will feel real when I remind myself of that light when the dark times show up;)

  4. Thank you Behind the Smile, I pray I never become bitter... there is always good in all lessons... some are deeper than others but hope is the answer;)
