It’s all a matter of perspective
When what you see mirrors what you feel…
I was out walking the dogs earlier on, and as we drove to the park, it went from bright sunshine, which was shining at home, to cloudy and foggy, only about five minutes down the road.
When we got out of the car and started walking, it was cold, and I found myself pulling my fleece tighter around me in an attempt to keep warm, and my mini dachshund gave me death stares as she shivered beside me.
When we got to the other side of the park, and began the walk back to the car, the sun came out, bringing the heat with it, and the mist all seemed to disappear.
It got me thinking. There are often times in life, where the fog seems to come down over us; engulfing us and making it almost impossible to see beyond the next corner.
There are times when we feel like there’s no possible way for us to escape the situation we find ourselves in, and we can feel like giving up and just stopping, but if we just keep pressing on; moving forward, then maybe, just around the corner the sun will peek through the clouds.
So, I guess what I’m trying to say, is that if you’re stuck in a foggy patch of life, then, just keep going. You may not be able to see the end right now, but it isthere… you just need to hold on to hope, and to keep going.
