‘You can’t have a rainbow without a little rain’ used to be my favourite quote when I was in high school. Now I think it was a bit naive and I used it to suppress the heavy heart I was having most of that period. Yet I think the phrase has some kind of deeper meaning to it. We need both dark and light in our lives. If there would be just light, we wouldn’t be able to recognize it for light. That doesn’t mean you should attract darkness or feel not worthy of experiencing light but it’s good to welcome both sides. Remember that nothing is permanent and try not to get attached to one of the two. When you are feeling calm and positive embrace the feeling but don’t try to hold on to it. When you are feeling low remember that better days will come. Isn’t it true that you can appreciate the light even more after you’ve in the dark? Try to trust the process and enjoy the rainbows on the way.
