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.
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.
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.
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.
Sending all my love to you, and holding you in my prayers and meditations, Nicole xx
