But What If?

I would like to finish the week with a brief thought connected to Tuesday (On The Other Side Of The Storm Is The Sunshine) and Wednesday (In And Out Of The Light) posts.

Sometimes it feels like the storm will not go away and the darkness never gives way to the light, which can lead you to wonder if you will ever see the sunshine or the light.

But what if the storm clouds stay?

Keep the faith.
–keep the faith that the storms will eventually pass and the sunshine will be more radiant than you can even remember. 

But what if we can’t seem to walk into the light?

Don’t stop.  Keep moving.
–If you stop and you don’t keep moving you will never get out of the darkness.  Slow progress is better than no progress.  Keep moving.

It’s natural to question, to doubt, and to wonder if you will ever see the sunshine and the light again. 

I believe that you will but you must have faith and keep moving even if it stays dark and stormy.  It is more important that your believe that and tell yourself that.

Finally, when the sun breaks through, when the light shines on you, all of the storms and all of the darkness that you’ve gone through will have prepared you for that moment.

Your “what If” will turn into a distant memory because you had faith and didn’t stop.

I’m cheering for you.
