Life is not always paved with petals that lie softly beneath our feet, protecting us from the harshness of stony paths. When buffeted by the strong winds of despair, and the swirling fears of what might lie ahead, remember that nothing lasts, and if you continue forward with your dreams as a guiding light you will make it through.
Past decisions that we “regret” or consider “mistakes” are just lessons learned the hard way. Past is past, it doesn’t have to be prologue. While it would be wonderful if only blissful experiences filled our waking moments, the arc of our unique and personal journey is not always smooth.
To those days when it feels difficult to roll back the covers and step out of bed, wishing that night could carry you past another day – think of one thing you are grateful for – decide one nice thing that you will do for yourself that morning – call a friend or family member to hear the voice of someone who cherishes you on the other line. Meditate, even if only for five minutes on what you would like to manifest for yourself. Then just breathe, knowing that you are surrounded by love and support.
Remember that when you are in the middle of the worst - You are already halfway there.
