Difficult times will come and go, it's all just part of life. It's not always easy to remain cheerful and optimistic during these trying times.
In the beginning there is that overwhelming feeling of shock that leaves you feeling disoriented and not sure of which way you will turn.
At times like this I tend to become very still and quiet, asking myself questions in hopes of finding answers.
Sometimes it becomes obvious that things cannot be changed, at that point it's wise to try and let go of that which I can't control. Most times choice and direction will begin to become clearer.
I am in one of those still and quiet times right now, hoping for obvious answers.
