I take heart and courage from the example of nature. The trees did not appear overnight, and though the elements shape and bend them, they grow stronger.
Music and love lift my spirits and warm my soul. A smile offered to another is often returned, but is felt with more warmth and joy.
When a day is hard and cold, I need to remember there is often something close by which can help lighten the burden and chase my shadows.
I am exactly where I need to be today, right now. Tomorrow will be a time of golden opportunity and joys as yet untold.
