Fear Not

File Under: Hearing is Believing

I want to dedicate today’s blog to those of us in the struggle who may be down, who may be struggling a little harder, who feel isolated, and who might feel they cannot continue the fight. Life is by no means easy, the world we live in is by no means fair, and the Universe is not always clear or gentle with its reason and purpose. Our suffering is for a purpose whether that purpose is clear or obfuscated. Moreover, by discovering that purpose we can learn, grow, and achieve. In the same manner that steel becomes forged through intense heat, a blade becomes sharp through grinding, sand becomes a pearl and carbon a diamond through pressure, so also do we as humans become wiser, stronger individuals through our failures and hardships. Remember that no matter how desperate the situation appears, no matter how unbearable the trial may seem, or how long you believe the journey will be – there is always hope. You are stronger than you think, wiser than you know, more courageous than you believe, and you are not alone. Fear not, you will conquer this too if only you do not give up because above all – you are loved.

Because I love you so much, I put something extra special together for you. This is my first YouTube video so leave some comments to tell me what you think. The video is set to "You Are Loved" by Josh Groban, off his 2006 album Awake.
