The saying, ‘Light at the end of the tunnel‘ is often used as a term of optimism for when things in the here-and-now are a bit rough.
Indeed, I am aware firsthand how dark, confusing & directionless life can seem, especially with prolonged illness.
However, I also think life can seem like an illuminated tunnel. We sort of know where it’s heading & we can see much of the way, but the end, our destination is much less clear.
For most of us the latter is true in our daily lives, but there may also be times when the lights go out. In such times, we may have very little to hold onto except that somewhere, the lighting will switch on again, even if only dimly.
Take care until next time …
