“In the midst of the darkest winter I found within myself an invincible summer.” ~ Albert Camus
Today, it is rainy and gray in Seattle. I’ve given up hope for an Indian summer and instead, I welcome the next season. Change is afoot in my home, my city, my country, the earth, the universe. Life is harsh. The collective stress of the world is a burden on the shoulders of everyone who is aware of it. The phrase, “ignorance is bliss” seems to be truer than ever.
But today is a new day. I can do whatever I want with it.
Today, I vow to stay positive. As my wise husband said last night, “the only thing constant is change.” And we know that change is less painful when we accept rather than resist.
Today, I will accept the craziness and the chaos and the storm and the enduring love all around me. I accept autumn. I accept my hardships. I accept my joy.
Today, I will find the invincible summer.
How do you find your invincible summer?
