A Peaceful Thought for a Difficult Day

For that moment when…

It feels as though it’s all gone wrong

Your dreams feel more distant than they ever have before

You just don’t know how you'll figure it out

The smallest task feels like a mountain to move

The fight in you is almost gone and the hope is almost dead

In that moment, know this:

Life is not the joy of achievement or the sorrow of failure

Nor is it the excitement of love found or the pain of love lost

Life is not the smile of the sunshine or the downturned lips of an overcast day.

And it’s not the laughter of now or the tears of tomorrow

Life is the room; the space

That holds it all

Life is the joy and the sorrow

The good and the bad

The excitement and the fear

The sunshine and the rain

The black and the white

And all the (50) shades of grey in between

Life doesn’t discriminate

Or say that one is more welcome than the other

It just opens its doors and says, “come”

And whatever is there, that is life

And it’s all a miracle.

Love and courage,
