Qqotd 11/7

How do you keep your light shining in dark times?

I let myself have my dark moments as long as they don't control me. You have to embrace the dark to relish in the light.

Oooohhh I like Leslie's answer!!

I try to remember a saying that my MIL has told me countless times... "This too shall pass", I actually want it as a tattoo, as a reminder that any dark times I encounter will pass... It won't last forever.

I also like the saying about how It's not about how you get through the rain, but learning to dance in it :inlove:

I think looking to the future in a positive manner is helpful. Accepting that what is happening is happening, but remembering not to dwell in it because it won't last forever.

I love your answers. I usually call on the angels to help me. "this too shall pass" and the serenity prayer also really help.

Re: Qqotd 11/7
I am learning to let the darkness flow through me. Not to resist it. Not to embrace it. And, when I feel the darkness coming from an outside source, to turn inward and to find solace in the spark of the Divine that lives inside my heart. I find living in THIS moment and only THIS moment and to let go of the hurtful past or the nerve-wracking moments to follow.. I can be at peace.

I usually realize its dark now but the light will always come even when it seems the darkest.

Terri, I like the idea of letting it flow on through.

Sharron, makes it easier to process and let go. The minute you invest energy into resisting, you multiply the problem.. right?

Re: Qqotd 11/7
Right. What's the best approach to this? When something bad happens, instead of resisting/stressing, take time out in some way before reacting?
