If we never experience ugly, how can we recognize beautiful?
I do not believe in silver linings, but I believe in hope and hold the fundamental belief that all things change. Nothing — good or bad — is permanent. There are dips and valleys and each has its flavor.
We travel to dark places, but climb out of them to find light. Evil exists, but so does good. Darkness shows us light. We weather storms and know we are strong. Such is life. The good, the bad, the ugly, the up, down and all the way around. We don’t need fake silver. We have the real thing.
My mother always said it. It was her mantra. Now I understand:
And this too shall pass.
