What a cave taught me about dark times in life…
I recently got back from a rappelling expedition in Belize.
During this expedition, I had the opportunity to explore a cave.
This cave was PITCH black.
Luckily, we had lights attached to a helmet we were wearing that lit the way for us.
This experience reminded me…
While traipsing through the cave it made me think about how, in so many cases, we go through a cave in our life (dark times in our life where it seems so black you can’t see the way out).
A little over a decade ago I was $750,000 in debt…
Questioning myself and every decision I made.
I couldn’t eat, sleep or think.
There were days where I’d go to a bar and take out 2-3 vodkas just to get through the day.
I couldn’t see a way out & it was incredibly frustrating.
When I was in that dark period I wish somebody would have told me…
When there’s hope for the future, there’s power in the present.
At the time what I didn’t realize at the time was that there have been MANY people that have made it through dark times their life…
Even darker than what I was experiencing at the time.
So, if you’re going through dark times in life just know…
You’re going to find a way out too.
You just have to keep walking and continue searching.
The process of searching breeds hope.
It’s like the old saying, “When you’re going through hell, don’t stop!”
When I was $750,000 in debt I wanted to curl up and hide…
…But listen, you don’t ever find the light by hiding.
You don’t find the light by staying where you are but you find the light by searching and continuing to walk.
Have hope for the future and bring power to the present.
Keep walking my friend.
