Sometimes it can be too easy to lose sight of what is important and what matters as hope drains away. Like a storm sweeping in and stripping all that is good.

How do we keep going and put one foot in front of the other? As the black clouds gather and cast a dark shadow over our hopes and dreams, swallowing up every positive thought we once dared to have.

It would be so easy to give up and not care what happens to us and everything else near and far. But that would be a waste. We are here for a reason and maybe that reason is to fight. Fight back with all our will and might.

If life teaches us anything, it is that things are not meant to be easy or straightforward. When fate throws you a curveball remember to look for the rainbows. The light at the end of the tunnel. The calm after the storm. It is there and together we are stronger.

Like Aragorn said “There is always hope.”
