Sunlight and shadow,
Create life’s balance.
It seems that we are supposed to a life filled with nothing but happiness and joy. That this is the ultimate goal, the thing we should constantly strive towards. Believing that we must achieve happiness as a constant state of being can lead to feeling of failure. The reality is that not every day is a happy one. We all have those days/weeks/months/years that leave us battered, bruised and broken. Without the shadows, we are unable to appreciate the light.
