“These are the times that try men’s souls.” Bonus points if you know who said that first.

Sometimes feeling feelings can be so frightening. It’s incredibly scary to know that another person can hurt you so badly.

The flipside of that is that the very same person who holds so much power to hurt also has the power to make you feel absolutely amazing. They can truly make your life a joyous thing; filled with laughter and light.

Sometimes you have to walk through a lot of darkness before the dawn breaks.

I know that. I’ve walked through some serious dark, its been a long and often tortuous road. One full of pits and dead ends, forks that seem identical until you’ve traveled so far that there is no going back; you can never quite go back to the person that chose one path over another. And honestly I wouldn’t want to: once your eyes have been opened to the greater possibilities of life and love, why would you ever want to close them?

So, yes I’ve walked through this valley, the shadow of death a spectral guest on that path and yet I fear no evil and I can see the sun peeking over the horizon.

“if there’s one thing that I know…”

I have a confidence born not of experience but of a feeling, an inexplicable sense that there is some reason for all of this.

Keep it real kids,
❤ ry
