Everything Has Potential

Sometimes, it is Ok for things to be less than Ok. We have, in our minds, an unrealistic expectation. We think everything has to be perfect. If it isn't, we figure we must be doing something wrong. But we live on a planet where nothing is without fault. Nothing....and nobody! What counts, in the end, is not how you manage to make things right. It's how you manage to live with the fact that some things will always be a bit wrong. Nothing feels right when you don't feel right. Everything has potential when you are willing to make room for a little magic in your life. Draw a deep breath, shake away the shadow and let some light shine in.

The Darkest Hour

The darkest hour is always just before the dawn, and the moment of greatest tension invariably precedes the time of deepest relief. It is all very well to make such academic observations from a distance but much harder to keep those truths in mind when the hour is indeed dark and the tension is palpably mounting. If any aspect of your life seems confusing and complicated, to sort them out, you must first understand them. That requires you to stand back from your emotions.
