There’s so much going on in the world around us right now, that could easily distract us from all of the blessings we have received and the very gift of life itself. With so many people dying and in pain, it’s hard to think about happiness. As tragic as it may seem this is life. We are like trees, here to grow, bloom and blossom. Then one day we too will fade away. The best thing we can do now is, stand tall and strong just like a tree and blossom. Circumstances can seem like dark clouds looming over us, sapping away the very life we have left. But with those dark clouds come rain, and that rain, whether you believe it or not, strengthens you. It brings back the very vitality that you lost. Again, this is all life. We have to go through periods of darkness in order to find our purpose. You can not and will not find your purpose unless you have an experience that awakens you to do what you were indeed created to do. No, the journey is never easy. As a matter of fact, it’s filled with hills, potholes, and ditches. But why stop now? Some people can’t continue the journey, but you can. So why stop now?
