Strength. Turn your face to the sun and shadows fall behind you.
Many of us have had tough times. By a certain age, most of us have endured moments or longer of hard times and with that, have some experience in disappointment, sadness, fear, loss and such. What I find most interesting though is how some people have endured hardships and yet they don’t allow those moments to define them.
Having been dealt the hand of breast cancer at age 34, I have experienced sadness, fear, loss and disappointment among other things…but that’s not to say that I haven’t been able to enjoy every sunrise, every cloud formation, every season and the precious moments of spontaneous hugs from my sons and family. I’ve seen the darkness and I’ve seen the light. Perhaps you feel that it’s not easy living on the roller coaster of life, a sentiment which I understand. However, what brings me comfort is that with every nightfall, I know that in a few hours, there’s a sunrise waiting for me and it’s that sunrise I choose to concentrate on and ‘turn my face to’ everyday. I feel grateful that I am here to experience it all ~ for without having experienced the darkness, how would we ever know how spectacular the sunrise is?
You own the power to choose everyday how you are going to face the day…
Turn your face to the sun and shadows fall behind you.
You’ll be glad you did!
