Dec. 18 – Daily Reflection

In the depths of winter, I finally found there was in me an invincible summer.
– Albert Camus, author
Stepping closer to the light at the end of the tunnel
Hard times are inevitable–death, financial struggle, family problems, the loss of a job, depression–all of these tough times are just seasons. Abraham Lincoln once said, “This too shall pass,” and you can apply it to both the good times and the bad. The thrill of a new relationship won’t endure forever, just as the grief of losing a loved one won’t either. So endure the hardships of life, knowing that time will eventually heal your wounds and you will make it through. Think about what struggles have occurred in your life and what they taught you. No matter how dim the light at the end of the tunnel seems, it is still a light. Each day is an opportunity for that light of hope to get closer and closer, until eventually the clouds above your head part and you feel the forgotten sunshine on you again. Overcoming pain makes you stronger and better equipped to handle the next valley.
