It is so easy to sink into darkness. Anger, frustration, disappointment, sadness, loneliness, comparison - these emotions are seductive. They call out to us with their siren song, pulling us slowly under under under the surface of the water so that we don’t even know we’ve been seduced until we full on can no longer breathe and we are drowning. ✨
As a matter of fact, looking for the light is a little like swimming. Staying afloat requires effort - sometimes it requires full on breast stroke and other times it’s treading water, but we know we have to remain in an active state in order to stay above the surface of the water. ✨
So it is with goodness, gratitude and joy. So it is with the light. Keeping focused on our blessings requires effort - sometimes it’s full on breast stroke and other times it’s treading water. ✨
Just keep looking for the light, and when you can’t swim anymore flip onto your back and float for awhile. Catch your breath, and keep on swimming.
