Hold On

You didn’t come this far to only come this far –Unknown

Hold on. Give it just a little more.

It has been a long winter. The cold has impacted all of us, some more, some less. The nights were endlessly long, the darkness seemed to be never ending and unstoppable. The days were short, there was scarcely light- and then night fell and there was only darkness.

We have all been stuck in some way, hidden away in our homes, trying to warm our bones next to the fireplace, our bodies with the love of a partner, with a sizzling tea or hot chocolate. There were times when the darkness seemed all encompassing, like there will never be an alternate reality but that which was presently wrapping its cold arms around us.

After months of depressive gloom the sun is finally smiling down at us. Buds are sprouting, birds are chirping, the leaves are tapping to the rhythm of the winds which are gentle and loving. The sun is soft on our cheeks, the promise of life, sunshine, glorious summer days ahead tantalizingly near.

There are times in our lives when we feel like the darkness will never end. When we our stuck in the rut of mental illness, past traumas, obsessions, heartbreak and more- and when we can barely see what’s ahead of us. 

The darkness feels restrictive, depressive, and constant; there doesn’t seem to be any hope for a brighter future. Hold on. Just give it a little more, wait for the clouds to part, for the winds to still, for the beauty to unfold around you. 

Darkness may seem constant, yet it is not never ending. Take a breathe, close your eyes, pray, and there will be a brighter, happier day. 

Hold on. The darkness feels forever, but remember that there is another day tomorrow and another chance for happiness and light.
