Overall Sunshine

Let’s face it.  Life can be rough at times.  Jobs are loss.  Relationships end.  Finances don’t act aright.  Kids misbehave.  Friendships dissolve.  The list could go on and on of the things that happen in life than can leave us feeling like we will be in a dark spot for eternity.  However, the truth is, life’s trials and moments of darkness don’t last forever.  A new job will be found.  A better relationship will come along.  Finances will begin to fall into place.  Kids will behave (or grow up and get out of your house, lol).  You’ll realize those friendships weren’t meant to be anyway.  The sun will shine again!!  Think about it.  Regardless of how long it’s dark outside or the weather is gloomy, at some point the sun always comes out.

Confession: Patience isn’t exactly one of strong character traits, and I’ve been going through some things in my personal life that have really been trying my patience and making me feel like the sun is never going to shine. So many times bloggers focus on creating content “for our readers,” and while I hope this post helps and inspires someone reading, I kinda wrote this one for me :-).
