"Everything in life is temporary.  So if things are going good, enjoy it because it won't last forever. And if things are going bad, don't worry. It can't last forever either."

This is, as such, the natural ebb and flow of life.  It is easy to settle in to the happy, calm moments like an over-sized warm fuzzy blanket, to fall into a comfortable routine and feel like everything, for the most part, is in order.  The steady rhythm hiccups and suddenly, you are thrown completely off balance and are desperately grasping for assurance.

True growth comes from these turbulent times and just when you think the darkness and despair will never end, suddenly the sun rises on a new day full of promise and possibilities.  The clouds pass and once again, you set eyes on the crystal blue sky and feel the gentle breeze on your face that carries away all your past troubles, if even just for a little while.
