There are times when the weight of life sits heavy on us. When the night comes in an interrupts the day faster than we thought. In those times we may feel weak, helpless and alone. I have been there before, in that dark hole, not knowing which way is up and as someone who was there I tell you that you can make it. I tell you from experience that there is a Sun beyond the horizon, that if you just stand up and push your way through the darkness all of the troubles and bad times will eventually pass. You have it in you, deep inside like a diamond hidden by coal, it is there, the strength of your mind, body and soul waiting for you to rise up like the phoenix from ashes and declare that you will make it to the light beyond the horizon, you will fight for a better day, you will persevere no matter what life throws at you. I know you have it in you, because you are great, i know that without even meeting you and although I cannot explain how I know it trust me when I say that YOU WILL NEVER GIVE UP and when you rise you need only look around you to see how many others you have lifted with the inspiration given by your example.
