We tend to think of many occurrences in our lives as either good or bad, happy or sad, light or dark, etc. But sometimes the negative is an important part of the positive. Leonard Cohen says “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” In order for us to enjoy and take in the sunlight sometimes we need to overcome the darkest nights and then we truly can see a brighter sun. Take your road bumps, climb your mountains, and after overcoming life’s challenges don’t see your experiences as blemishes or cracks. Instead, embrace them for making you stronger, enjoy the sunlight and allow the world to bask in your glow. Remember, only when its dark are we able to see the stars.
