“We spend so much time staring into the darkness that we forget that all that shines above us also shines within us.” Tyler Knott Gregosn
The fact that it is so much easier to let hurt, stress and sorrow overwhelm us, than it is to embrace the happy moments, positive changes and feelings of joy, remains a mystery to me. Is sadness that much more powerful than satisfaction and pleasure? I don’t think so…
Perhaps contentment has a tendency to be more fleeting, while pain likes to linger…but, why?
Don’t get me wrong, I fall victim to this conundrum quite frequently. However, in taking the time to stop, look around and question it all, I am starting to believe that if we focus a little bit more on the light, our fear of the dark, and its abrasive hold (which we enable), may slowly start to fade away.
