A Sliver

My moods have been all over the place lately. But I feel like home base is a feeling of hope and faith. The belief that everything will be ok in the end, no matter what. It’s really, really challenging at times to find this place, especially lately. But what I’m learning about myself is, it doesn’t take much to swing me back in the direction of hope.

Sometimes all it takes is a tiny little sliver of light. Just a crack will do. That tiny opening allows hope to pour back in. Today, after feeling the depths of despair, a sliver of light appeared. Just a small crack. But light nonetheless.

I’ll take it.

    Your encouragement has meant so much to me over the years. I see now that we share a vision of hope. I often say in the roughest moments, “just one. Just give me one good thing, one tiny win, and I will drive on with gusto.”

    Sometimes I get it. Sometimes I don’t. Either way, I’ve forgotten what an elixir the words of my friends – and the conversations I share with them – power my soul. Visits here and email with you do that. Thank you.

    • You’re so very welcome Eli. Isn’t it amazing how just that one, tiny, little thing – that confirmation of another possibility playing out, can rocket us in another direction? Can shift the tide?

      So good to read your comment this morning. It’s heart warming to know that I can help another soul recharge now and then. That’s the power of connection! We lift each other up, inspire each other, through sharing.

    Stay strong, old friend.
    We’ll get thru this together.

  4. It’s so true. You only need one small thing to go right, and your entire world shifts accordingly.
