Only in our darkest days, when the embers are just fading from a recent past crisis or unexpected loss, can we best see sparks. Small, bursts of light, that catch our eye and divert our thinking to something, new, different, and promising.
The sparks had been with us for a long time, but the clutter of our lives together with the intensity of light from an impending crisis kept us from seeing them. It’s best to see a small spark in darkness.
While painful, darkness sometimes is required to force us to begin to see a new path or a new idea that fills us with hope for a better tomorrow. There is good in everything we experience. Both good and bad.
Pay attention when you hurt the most. You just might be surprised what will appear.
