Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 229

img_00411

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”

Og Mandino

Many thanks, Spidey, for that thought provoking quote.

It’s easy to chug along with your plans for life, especially when everything is going your way.

Not so simple when it feels like everything is going against your every wish.

The above quote really made me think.

Because recently, certain dreams of mine have been put on hold, in order to realise others.

I feel like I am living a life of light and darkness at the same time.

Light, with my professional life, finally knowing I have my own class, but also fretting as I have a lot to set up in my classroom, and I can’t wait for school to end so I can make my mark!

Dark with my writing, but I know it is not a good time to finish my editing. I can’t give it a half hearted effort, after all this time I’ve spent, coaxing it out into the world. The stars are there though, showing me the way. I know I will get there, but it’s just not knowing quite when…

So… tell me, do you have light and dark sections in your life?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤

    Yes, I think your description is apt. I think that’s what the balance is all about. Like those time travel movies, which reality is the real one? Both.

    I’ve been feeling that way with my writing, too, but it takes time to make your story shine. You’ll get there. 😉 Be patient with yourself.

    Unfortunately, this is how life goes, Ritu, and we all have to put our paid jobs first. You will get there, slow and steady wins the race.

    We have to accept we will have moments of darkness but we have to believe the light will come.

    Sorry for not replying to previous posts, but WordPress decided to change a setting on me, resulting in my not getting a single notification of posts from people I follow! Perhaps that’s the bit of darkness I went through and guess what? I emerged just fine on the other side, so the positive/negative/positive sandwich will be on the menu for some time to come I think!

    A perfect quote for this week! My darkness is the opposite to yours – work is stagnant whilst the writing is speeding along. I almost feel like running back to my cave. The fear of failing at the last hurdle haunts me constantly. At least at work I know what I can and can’t achieve.

    Oh definitely. Professional life could be light but personal life dark or vice versa. I experience this dichotomy a lot. But I learn something each time. I love the quote by the way.
