The path of my life frequently leads me through dark tunnels. Some are short and the light comes quickly, the length varies from tunnel to tunnel. Some are very long with the light so far away that I tend to dwell in the darkness and despair that the light will never come. Then when it finally does, instead of basking in the light I dread the next tunnel.
Perhaps it’s not too late for me to learn to appreciate the tunnels as opportunities for soul-searching and learning so that I may fully enjoy the light when it comes no matter how short its duration.
