Darkest Days {Words for my Wednesday}

Sometimes when you think things can't get any worse, they do. It happens. 
When it rains it pours, right? Yeah, it really does.
There are always clear skies after the storm, but seeing that far in advance isn't always what you want to do when you're living in the moment, listening to the rain.


Even in your darkest days, 
There's always some light to shine. 
A beam of motivation. 
A glimmer of hope.
A spark of inspiration.
We all need those in times of darkness.

Light at the end of a tunnel,
No matter how long that tunnel is.
Sunshine on a cloudy day,
No matter how many clouds block the view.

Without the dark days, 
We might not ever know how strong we are or can be.
And even in our darkest days,
We gain more strength to move on to something better.

Don't be afraid of the dark anymore.
You can find the light and own it.
Just a tiny bit of light can be brighter than any darkness.
Like a single rose among the many thorns.

Are you afraid of the dark?

Beautiful words! (and picture)
I hope there is nothing but shine in your neck of the woods. But as you said, the dark helps us to appreciate the light :)

I love it Kim! I think it's important to have the bad times because it teaches us to grow and become stronger.

Great post, Kim!

Yesterday we had dark clouds in our sky. There was a small hole. Guess what was in that hole... A piece of rainbow! Amazing and rear view!

We all have bad days, life hits hard but it is how we deal with those days and move past them that's important. Its great to have a support system as well.

I can't even describe how much I love this Kim, and needed it today. You know I struggle with the dark days, but how much sweeter the light is because of them. Thank you for these beautiful, encouraging words.
