In spring we welcome the beautiful warm, sunny days which start to appear. Spring is here! Winter's over! Things are good! There is renewal.
And then, there is a cloudy, windy, cold day. Did we only imagine that spring was here? Was it real? Will it ever come back?
In life, or at least in my life, sometimes one goes to some dark places. For whatever reasons, to whatever places. Life gets us down. But with whatever strength we have, and work, luck and the help of others, we get back up. We clean things up. We start a blog. We laugh out loud. We shine again.
And then, a few things happen or don't happen that disappoint us. Individually, they may not be that big but they add up. We feel a little down. We feel discouraged. And we wonder, was it all for nothing? Are we still in the same place after all? Does it not matter what we do, it will all end up pretty much the same?
I choose no as the answer to those questions. Positive changes lead to more positive changes and the effects accumulate. Good things happen! Change takes place! Our little corner of the world becomes a better place!
As Joni Mitchell sings "I've looked at love from both sides now." Well, I've looked at life from both sides and I choose the side that I'm on now. There will be grey days but there will be sunshine too. I've experienced it. I believe that it will come back.
