As I think back on my life, I wouldn’t change it at all. There have been times that were ugly and times that hurt, but there have been beautiful times.
When I look at it all now I think that the beautiful wouldn’t be quite so wondrous if I hadn’t felt the pain.
There’s a simple and pure magic that comes after you’ve traveled through a dark passage and see the morning light.
The up and down of life reminds us that we are alive. For every pitch black night there’s a night filled with stars. A sky alive and shining.
That’s why I love all of this. The madness, the gorgeous sunlight, the stillness at midnight, and the silence of life in the early morning hours.
Embrace it, breathe it, and live it. Pain and joy.
