A   L   O   H   A  !

- just remember, the storm doesn't last forever. 
It can scare you; it can shake you to your core. 
But it never lasts. The rain subsides, the thunder dies, 
and the winds calm to a soft whisper. And that moment 
after the storm clouds pass, when 
all is silent and still, you find peace. 
Quiet, gentle peace.
                   S.L. Jennings

Peace is the result of retraining your mind 
to process life as it is, rather than 
as you think it should be.     
           Wayne W. Dyer

Worry does not empty 
tomorrow of its sorrows, it
empties today of its strength.
Corrie ten Boom

So don't be frightened, dear friend, 
if a sadness confronts you larger than any 
you have ever known, casting its shadow 
over all you do. You must think that 
something is happening within you, 
and remember that life has not forgotten you; 
it holds you in its hand and will not let you fall. 
Why would you want to exclude from your life any uneasiness, any pain, any depression, 
since you don't know what work 
they are accomplishing within you?”
Rainer Maria Rilke, 
Letters to a Young Poet

Thank you.
Thoughts to ponder. Some days I believe that fear and depression are perfectly rational responses to circumstances - in the short term.

Lovely sky images. My mind can be worrying at one time and peaceful the next.
Life is full of ups and downs. Wishing you a happy day!
