“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up at their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.”
~ Louisa May Alcott
It can make things easier sometimes to believe that where we want to be can be symbolized as something as beautiful and elegant as sunshine. Some days it shines upon us and makes us feel full and beautiful, and other days it’s hidden under gloom and clouds. But in our hearts and our minds it’s always there.
It can be something we always look up to and continue to strive for and follow. We must not let go of our dreams, as big or small as they might be.
Some days this simple metaphor is what gets me through the day. Knowing the darkness has settled over but given time the sun will shine through and I will have hope again.
