Life is fickle. Life is funny. It seems to go one of two ways. Either nothing is happening or everything is happening and our world is collapsing around us all at once. Both the boredom and chaos associated with either scenario can be all encompassing and destructive. In the calm, it is easy to become complacent. In the storm, it is easy to give up, but don’t. You are much stronger than you ever imagined. As Victor Hugo so eloquently said, “even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.” And remember, as you weather the storm, you are not alone.
