Turn The Light On

This Is Hard To Do!

By Ruth Elizabeth StiffPublished 5 months ago 1 min read

“It is during our darkest moments

that we must focus to see the light”

This is hard to do !

When we are going through a difficult situation,

it is hard to remember

that things will get better.

If we can ‘learn’ to be Positive,

see the good in everything

when life is going ok,

our minds will be ‘trained’

to do the same

when the hard times come.

When we go into a room,

in the evening,

we turn the light on

to see where we are going in the room.

The same is true

when we are going through a difficult time.

We may not be able to ‘change’ the situation

but we can ‘turn the light on’ inside ourselves

and be Positive and Determined

to get through that particular situation.
