Wise Words to Get Us Through Tough Times

When life begins to feel like its dragging its heels, when we are faced with a challenge, we can often lean into the negative feelings that come with those types of situations. Although we need to be able to be comfortable with discomfort, we always run the risk of following those negative thoughts down the rabbit hole. Here are some wise words from Marianne Williamson on the process of finding light in the dark:

“The darkness is an invitation to light, calling forth the spirit in all of us. Every problem implies a question: Are you ready to embody what you believe? Can you reach within yourself for enough clarity, strength, forgiveness, serenity, love, patience and faith to turn this around? That’s the spiritual meaning of every situation: not what happens to us, but what we do with what happens to us. The only real failure is the failure to grow from what we go through.”

– Marianne Williamson, The Gift of Change

We can lean into our values when difficult times arise. They will help us find the light. 🙂
