"Patience child, patience. Remember, life is a journey. If you got everything you wanted all at once there'd be no point to living. Enjoy the ride, and in the end you'll see these 'setbacks' as giant leaps forward, only you couldn't see the bigger picture in the moment. Remain calm, all is within reach; all you have to do is show up every day, stay true to your path and you will surely find the treasure you seek."
How often do we grumble our way through what feels to be an endless, and most unwelcoming path? We loathe each step, complaining over the briars and the branches and the 'yet another fine predicament we've found ourselves in again.' We feel the whole weight of this world in our legs, and worry we'll not ever make it through these 'woods' again.- Jackson Kiddard, author & polymath.
But then, the clearing comes ~ and, the daylight greets us here.
And, we realize - had we only wandered with this day's light in our hearts, it's quite possible we might not ever have complained.
But, that's the problem now, isn't it?
We never really know the truest meaning of light, until that moment when it finally makes its way through those trees once again.
