In our lives we go through many phases. We experience darkness which in turn gives us the clarity to find the light we all so dearly seek. During times of adversity, music was a source of strength, and personally the foundation I had was rock.
I had come across a passage which I found exceptionally inspiring.
"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
Our thoughts make up our reality, and we are what we think.
