Dark day


A dark day

Just as a ‘bright day’ can occur without the necessity of fine weather, a ‘dark day‘ likewise is not tied to climatic conditions. In any case, we are able to embrace both the positive and negative elements of the moment and act accordingly.

Looking more clearly at what we may wish to label a dark day opens the way to learning. Certain lessons can appear as we delve into the testing moment. It may not turn out to be wonderful, but possibly at least beneficial to our development.

A special attitude is not particularly called for, merely one capable of seeing beyond the negative first instance. It is an ability we all surely have, and one worth exercising regularly.

Observing the day through neutral eyes reveals the moment in its fullness. What at first came across as a dark day in this situation will be assessed more carefully. Just as a tough day holds learning, the so-called ‘bright days’ hold elements of difficulty too. Within each day the whole spectrum of life can be found.

Of course, what constitutes a dark day for one person could be labelled as a bright day for another person from his or her perspective. The outlook sets the tone. To share your input on the issue put forward here, please leave a comment below.

Thanks for reading this, hopefully not on a dark day for you.
