Are you into faith? If so, rely on that.

If you’re not too big on it try this, focus on the positive even if that means staying to yourself. During (what seems like) the little time we have left there are still days that the sun will shine….there are still moments where the cool fresh air will kiss your skin….there are still going to be times where you exchange genuine short moments of greetings like “Good morning”, “Hello”, or even simple authentic smiles to complete strangers that you may or may not ever see again.

Point is, we have a choice even amidst the turmoils we experienced or are going through. Be aware of the future but don’t let it govern your thoughts, feeling, and emotions… if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that the past is the past and the future is the future. We have no control over either, we only have control of the here and now. The present…the ‘gift’ we can ultimately choose to live in and be grateful for or spend it doing and thinking about things that won’t make us happy.

On that note I trace back to what I stated earlier, focus on the positive….even if it’s little. For that little moment of glory is worth the warmth that will fill your body, mind, and soul.

I sure do hope that you find some light in the days ahead of you.

Take care dear friend!
