Pain and Sorrow

Version 2When pain and sorrow rears its ugly head, as it will from time to time, its been said to move towards it and ask for help.

This is not a familiar place to go for most people and obviously not a comfortable place to be.

However it is a place of learning and discovering yourself in ways that aren’t warm and fuzzy.  One has to deal with the sadness head on in an attempt to shed light as only light can combat darkness.

Darkness cannot survive in the light.

We are all simply works in progress and when we discover that once we stop the cause of suffering in ourselves we can only then stop causing suffering in others.

I wasn’t given a manual on how to live and I’m attempting to do my best. Today I feel like a hurdler that hits every hurdle in the race.  Hitting hurdles hurt.

I have had a motto that I have lived by for many years, “Enjoy your life and don’t hurt anyone”.

I try to remember that It’s only Stuff – but I keep in mind that Stuff isn’t always good or easy to deal with.

Many lessons to be learned……….The journey continues.
