Hey guys! That was a pretty long post yesterday wasn't it...I just had to let my experience be known I guess. It's one more step in me accepting life for what it can be.
After going through a "dark night of the soul" so to speak, I realized that I wasn't the only one to have experienced something like that. In fact, it's kinda what we all signed up for, wouldn't you say? The challenge is in how you "deal" with it. When you're stuck outside with no umbrella...are you able to be ok with that? Or will you run away, cry and worry about getting wet? The challenge is to stand out there in the rain.
That's the challenge, and it's not something that I'll "master" one day and then be perfect and enlightened for the rest of my life. No. It's something I have to remind myself of every single day. Because I'm still human. I'mnot immune to the darker things that happen on this earth. I can't control these things...I CAN however control how I deal with them. I CAN choose to accept them. Somehow find illness acceptable. Somehow find death and suffering acceptable. When we can do this, our spirit becomes almost indestructible.
