"Turn your face to the sun and shadows fall behind you."
- Maori Proverb
When I was a little girl I was terrified of the dark. I didn't have a nightlight in my room so I would carefully prop my bedroom door open so the light from the hallway would give me comfort. Light brightened my world, warmed me and made me feel safe.
"It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light."
Coming into the light is another way to describe how you can overcome challenges. It may be that it finally "dawns" on you that you've been following the wrong path. Or "in the light of day" your troubles may not seem as bad as they did in the "dark of night."
Focus on that positive future. Create that list of things you'd like to do with your life and start doing them. As Paul McCartney says, " . . .follow the sun."
