In the Darkest Hours

Our days are filled with so much. From things to do, people to see, and errands to run. Often times we can get caught up in “the everyday” and we forget the important things. Or so it seems. We take for granted what is right in front of us every day. Sometimes we need a wake up call. And then it happens.

I have struggled through so much in my life, from friendships to marriages to relationships at work or with my children. I have struggled through poverty to lower middle class america and everywhere in between. All of these struggles have one thing in common. At the core is a decision.

Decisions are what make up the paths we take in life. Sometimes our decisions are made  for us and other times its our lack of action that is in and of itself a decision for our life. I have learned to never regret any decisions that I have made or avoided making because the cumulative of them all have made me who I am today and brought me to this place in my life.

I have also learned that life will continually teach you the same lesson over and over until you learn it. All of this leads to growth. Growing from within and having insight into the world around you is such a powerful tool that many waste away or toss aside. I am lucky in that the people I have around me are supportive and guide me to my own answers within using the insight they have as well.

Sometimes our darkest hours create the richest experiences and cause the most growth. That is my wish for my dark hours. I pray that I will learn from this experience and I will come out the other side a better person than I am today.
