This too, shall pass...

Let's face it. There are times in our life when things get really bad. When no matter what you do, no matter what you try, you feel like the universe has put up a wall to keep you from getting past it. Remember one thing, though:

"When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." -- Harriet Stowe

The most important thing to do every time you overcome an obstacle, and if you're reading this now, you've survived and overcome an obstacle in your life, is to look back, see that it was not as bad as it seemed at the time, and take pride in your ability to persevere. Take a few minutes tonight, or whenever you're reading this, and think back on all the crap you've gone through. Not to reminisce and bring yourself down, but to fortify your soul, and show yourself the amazing strength you possess.

These past few days, I've been struggling with something, and trying to figure it out how to fix it, and at the last second, when I was ready to give up, the situation fixed itself. So when I found this quote, I just had to share it with you.

Just remember, you have overcome, you will overcome, and even if it was bad, you know one thing for sure. If it ever gets that bad again, you've already beaten it once, and you can do it one more time.

Here's to hoping that life is smooth sailing, but to knowing that it won't be.

Good night, and sweet dreams.

    Wow. That really got to me.
    And came really close to bringing a tear to my eye. It was beautiful, what you said. Thank you.
    And Im being completely honest here. You did make me think about what kind of things I have over come and think about what I am overcoming now.
    Life is hard, but we will survive. Perceiver.
    Thanks for that.
