And so another day has said its goodbyes about an hour ago and the new one has welcomed us in, with seemingly darkness; seeing as it is night time. But I think we can all agree that after the night comes the morning; its just a fact, which we all agree will happen.
How come then in our own life journey, do we think that when it seems to be dark, that it will always stay that way? Life never stays that way; it can only stay dark all the time if you choose to stay inside; inside "your home" (or thoughts), with the curtains drawn closed. Then it may seem as though it is always night, but in fact it's day.
When we open the windows, and let the light in, we find that the light penetrates the darkness; the darkness doesn't overwhelm the light. Maybe it's time to step out of your comfort zone a little and open your life up, to the possibility of a new day. Invite some people in who will shine bright in your life.
You don't have to live isolated and alone. There is hope for tomorrow, so don't give up today. You never know, today you might be the smile that brightens up someone's day and tomorrow someone else may be the smile that brightens up yours.
