Out of the Darkness

Spring weather is approaching, and the treachery of this winter is steadily disappearing. I cannot help but to reflect on how symbolic this time of year is. Summer is when life is great. Fall is when problems arise. Winter is the cold, lonely despair felt after something went horribly wrong. And Spring is the season of healing and new beginnings.

Often times, we fall in the rut of Winter and forget that Spring is coming. Bad situations appear impossible to get through. Strength dissipates from our bones. Darkness seeps into our lights. Hope seems like a meaningless word. It is easy for most of us to just lie down and give up. However, we must remain strong. Why? Well, just as the spring warms the cold grasp of winter, time heals a broken soul. No matter how rough and horrible the situation is--it will get better. There is always a brightness along the path.

Remember, Spring is here even if you have to wait a little longer than usual. Regardless how dead the Winter is--a new beginning is right around the corner. Peace and love my friends.
