It’s Always Darkest Before The Dawn

December 9, 2013

11524-It-s-Always-Darkest-Before-Dawn… that is how you know a new day is coming.

Just when you think you cannot bare anymore darkness, life shifts. It has to. Nothing ever stays the same. Life is in constant fluctuation and change.

The ending of a phase of life heralds in the dawn of a new day. It is important to remember the nature of life’s cycles. Darkness is the phase where one simply cannot see and Light is the phase where answers can be readily found.

When you are in a period of darkness, it can only last so long.  It is NEVER forever. Once it hits its darkest point, the light must return. Vice versa, once the light has shown us the way, it is time for the darkness to return in order for us to learn something new about ourselves. The darkness brings opportunity for growth. It brings us situations and people that challenge us and force us to look beyond our limitations for answers.

The light is our reward for finding our way through the darkness. The darkness shapes your character and is one of your greatest teachers.

Don’t be afraid of the dark. Find new ways of moving through the darkness and keep your head up because you know once you hit the darkest point, the sun has to return, it can be no other way. In the interim, don’t just wait for the sun to come out; learn how to navigate your way through the darkness. Managing the darkness will make you much happier and much more adept at enjoying the light of your life.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
