The glory of light cannot exist without the shadows. — Winston Churchill.
I know a lot about shadows, but they were never as bad as I feared. In fact, I learned a lot more while I was living in the shadows than when I was living in the sunshine of the moment. In our life, we learn to go with the rhythm of life — the good times and the bad, the days of joy and the days of sorrow, and the days of turmoil and the days of peace.
Sometimes life is like learning to swim. At first we thrash about fighting the water and sinking to the bottom, but over time one learns not to fight the water, but to relax, be still, and when we do we always float to the top.
