Have you ever been away from home for a long period of time? Perhaps to a really crappy place. A place with no soul. Where you’re far away from those you love, feeling isolated and homesick. The weather is rubbish all the time and you’re stuck far away from your comfort zone.
Perhaps the sun doesn’t shine as much as you’d like. The atmosphere is dark and oppressive.
Sometimes it scares you as you’re not quite sure how long you’ll be there. Maybe coming back seems impossible. Or maybe you’ve forgotten the way home.
No matter how long you’ve been there, or if you are there now, one day you will return. You’ll realise that on even the dullest day the sun was there all along behind the clouds. You are suddenly surrounded by love and those who care. In fact they’d been there all the time.
If you’re reading this from that dark place… this is for you. Keep going.
It’s only a matter of time before you wake up one day and realise you didn’t go anywhere.
You’ve been here all along.
