When you’re having a rough week, it can feel like walking up to a once-glorious castle, only to discover that the former fortress has now been reduced to ruins, weeds growing through the rubble of the courtyard, the leaves on the trees dull and brown. You can sense the change in the air as the clouds gather, hear the eerie sound as the wind whistles through the darkened windows. It is with a sense of trepidation that you wait, expecting the worst, afraid of what will come next.
It is at those times that you have to stop, take stock of your life and find something wonderful. Something that brightens your day. That one little thing that brings back your smile and if even for a moment, lifts the weight from your shoulders, allowing you to see daylight again.
Like finding butterflies in the aftermath, you can then move forward, ready to deal with whatever comes next.
