For those of us who are struggling

I have been really really struggling over the last few weeks, in the roller coaster of life, definitely at the bottom of a valley, but try to climb the next hill.

This was posted on the Riding Light page on fb the other day

I really need to print this out and post it everywhere. Just right now I feel like I am under that dark dark water, weighed down and heavy, and slightly damp from crying. This reminds me that we can get back to the surface, then unfold our wings and soar into the light, in all ways.

Here is to light and lightness, first of spirit, then of mind, and keep working on the body. Surprising how those worries that weigh nothing can make you physically to think about this.

At least you ARE trying, working your way up. Living.

What a beautiful, uplifting image. I think it should be done in high quality black velvet and silk.

You can see it as coming out of the darkness or you can see it as shining light on the darkness.. no matter which way, it's a truly beautifal picture.

Recognizing that times are difficult is often the first step to getting through those times. One of my catch phrases in difficult times is "The only thing in life that never changes is change itself." It's a reminder to me that no matter how tough it is now, it will change and I always look for positive change at those times.

You can do this, Golden Horse!!!

You've already come so far, against the current, and been so amazing.

Keep it up, girl! It doesn't have to be a fast-accomplished goal. Every little bit helps and will get you that little bit closer to where you want to be.

Ohh could you imagine it on a black kimono?

Yes, with snow falling all around, in a rock garden, just like "Kill Bill"!

Maybe a T shirt

A t-shirt doesn't do it justice. I was thinking more along the lines of a wall hanging or throw. The kimono works also. A t-shirt is just too... oh, too "light" - not "deep" enough.

Yeah I know, just playing with it, it does need velvet, satin or silk, not cotton, and something more substantial than a T shirt
