The Light at the end of the Tunnel

It’s always darkest before the dawn. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Every cloud has a silver lining.

There’s lots of platitudes for every situation. Hell, I’ve even said all of these at one time or another.

None of it helps when you are ‘in the moment’.

What I want to know is – why is the light always at the END of the tunnel? Why can’t you have a light at the beginning of the tunnel?

Not to mention that with all the tunnels I’ve been through – why is there still that moment of panic as you enter the darkness – madly groping the walls looking for a light switch? All the way through the tunnel…

Of course, the thing about a tunnel is that you don’t really have to see where you are going. You’re going to wander around, through the twists and turns as long as it takes until sooner or later, if you just keep moving forward, you find the way out. Sooner or later you will get to the end. You will see the light. It doesn’t even matter how long the tunnel is, or how long it takes you to find your way. The light will still be there.

Once you reach the light, you can see that there are so many ways to turn, so many paths to follow… so many choices…….

You might begin to wonder what the panic was about. You might even remember to turn around next time, before you enter the next tunnel.

Wishing you health and happiness,
