The Tides Will Turn

As I sit and write this today, I am reminded of a journey that has taken me years to get through. A journey that was so challenging and so hopeless at times that I wanted to give up. I started a gratitude journal 30 days ago, and as I re-read it this morning I realized how much my life has changed, for the better. I was reminded earlier by someone that I love so much, my brother, of these times that were so challenging to me. It is so hard when you are in the middle of a treacherous storm, when you are trying so hard to stay positive, and you are trying with all of your heart to do what is right - and the tides are just beating you against the rocks. It seems as if the seas within will never be calm, that you will never see the calm power of the ocean that you are in. This reminded me of so many years in my life, I didn't think the pain would ever end. I didn't think that the challenges that I was facing would ever be peaceful. But, I am here so many years later living such a peaceful life. I have learned so much from all of it, and I cherish peace in my life the most. As I re-read my gratitude journal entries for the last month I see that each day I mention how grateful I am for peace in my life. So, if you are going through a storm and the oceans are rough, stay your course....steady and strong. Keep your head up and know that you will find the peace, that the good that you are doing will overcome any challenge you face. It may not seem like it right now, but it will. I thank my husband for teaching me this lesson, and for staying the course with me, I am forever grateful. Namaste :)
