That’s Just How It Works

While no one can know the future, it sure seems like we’re coming up on some hard times. Signs are indicating that things will get worse before they get better, and there’s little anyone can do but wait to reach the other side.

Everything about life is cyclical. Ups and downs; highs and lows; bulls and bears; peaks and valleys. One day we’re head over heels and the next we’re down in the dumps.

But, rest assured, it will get better. Things will be looking up and we will see the other side.

That’s just how it works.

The only question is what will we do with the downtime?

Will we take advantage of our situation and use this time to get better? Will we learn something, create something, do something that proves to be to our advantage once things return to normal, or will we simply wait it out, agonizing and worrying over what happens next?

Either way, while we’re waiting for things to return to “normal”, time marches on. Nothing stands still. Time passes, the world keeps turning, seasons roll by, and things change.

Will we be brave enough to change as well?
