In life we all face dark times and tough challenges. What makes the difference is how we get through them is whether we are focused on the darkness or reaching for the light. There is something wonderful and beautiful in life and in us that calls to us in our toughest moments. It would lead us through any challenge if we would only stand still and listen.
Whatever challenge you're facing right now, take a moment to be still. Turn your attention inward and listen to that quiet voice. Reach for light, and like this old tree you will outlast anything you face.
