This too will pass… sunshine is on the way

August 6th, 2007 · 3 Comments

When you change the way you think, you’ll discover that your sadness, fear, frustration and any other troubling feelings cannot last. Even nature can’t create a storm that never ends.

– Wayne Dyer

the sun is always shining, whether we can see it or not!

Whenever I am in the midst of one of those terrible storms in my life – you know, where everything seems to be going wrong, where there seems to be drama atop of drama, and your stress levels seem to climb through the roof leaving you feeling like a total wreck – I find it very helpful to remember that ‘this too will pass‘.

Nothing lasts forever, and most of all – bad times don’t last forever. Whatever the crisis – you will survive, you will get through, you will see sunshine and blue clouds again.

 

The darkest night is often followed by the brightest day.

If you’re going through a stormy time right now, remember that the sun will rise in the morning, the world will keep spinning and you will come through the other side of this. I believe in you.

You must trust this: when you hold firm to the belief that everything will be OK, that you will prevail – your hope and positive thoughts will make all the difference.

This week, may you be blessed with the ability to see ahead to clear, blue skies and sunshine-y days…

    Great enouragement, Karen. Thanks. There’s a terrific scene which uses exactly that new day after the darkest night metaphor late in the new Amazing Grace movie. It’s the turning point at which Wilberforce is giving up on his fight against slavery but is convinced not to. It’s soon after that that the fresh thinking happens which turns the entire situation around and brings success.
    Carpe Diem!

    Thanks Pete! I haven’t seen Amazing Grace yet – but I did see the ad for it last week, and said to hubby that it looked interesting. Was it good?

    I appreciate your comment, thank you.

    Well, I was hiding the two tears running down my face at the end of it as I walked out with my wife and son. So I’d say it was either really bad or really good!
