Everything changes…

Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Take heart, because everything changes. No matter how stuck you feel right now, how burdened or exhausted or unhappy, know that it will not last.  Nothing lasts forever.  Everything changes.

While that is also true of our fondest moments and happiest times, it is usually when we are stuck deep down some hole, helpless and hopeless, that we most need to be reminded of this eternal truth.

This baby elephant fell down a drainage well in Thailand, but don't worry - he was later rescued, unharmed.

If there is no glimmer of light where you are, then look inside yourself.  Use the light of your own heart to guide you.  Use the heat of your own love to warm you.  Hang on. Take courage.  Get through things the best way you can.

And as the earth revolves, and the sun goes up and down, eventually there will be a ray of light again to illuminate your world, a helping hand to lift you up, or an idea in your mind that will elevate you from where you are right now.

First Light, Byron Bay, by paul (dex) from vagabondish.com

Everything changes.  There is a season for all things.  If your time to shine is not yet, then know that it WILL come. And if your time to shine is here, then see how many other lives you can illuminate.

A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.

♥ Wishing you Love, Light and Rainbows xx ♥

    • I intend to have a good day, Rhonda. My first day off since Easter!

      I loved that baby elephant pic too. The village brought in a digger and dug out the drain so the elephant could climb out. I was so relieved to know he was okay, because that is such a sad photo…

  2. Thanks for a beautiful post…filled with your loving words of trust & love…to beautiful images and to top it off…Eva Cassidy..big hugs to U…XXX

    • You are welcome, Satisha. I write this because it comes from the experience of having been down that dark, bleak miserable hole myself. And despite those holes in life, it is still such an honour to be here in my skin. Life is fabulous, every single bit and the hard places make the good times all the more sweet. ♥ xx

  3. Hi Nicole, It was such a delight to come across you on-line. Since our first meeting many many years before your words from our very first meeting are still with me. Thankyou and your post today is exactly what I needed to hear. Much love Lynette xx

  4. That’s truly fantastic! So beautifully written and so wonderful to read and absorb and use in my own life – such words of wisdom and love!

  5. Hi Nicole,
    I think I may have been in your thoughts when you wrote this. Am looking into my heart to guide me each and every day of late. Times can be tough but they can also be good. One cycle of life leads into another. Thank you for being you and all that share with others. xx

    • Thanks Sam! I couldn’t not say what happened to the elephant – sensitive souls everywhere would have been worried about his fate, and worry is not an energy I want to promote. Much love to you xoxo

  6. Hi Nicole, We are travelling at the moment and I love reading your posts when we have internet range on the road.

    A couple of weeks ago I wrote a poem and posted it on my blog – about the fact that nothing ever stays the same. It is called Memories. If any of your readers would like to read it… click on my name and it should take you to my website. Click Blog..and then the ‘Memories’ photograph and poem is on page 2 at the moment.

    Although I did not use the same icon as the candle as you did… experience is what fills the crack of memory and enables life to change and for things to never stay the same.

    With Love, Julie
