"Keep your face in the sunshine and you can never see the shadow."
We are truly masters of our own fate in ways we do not always care to admit. It is much easier to pretend to have little choice in most things we battle, shouldering any responsibility forces us to cope with the very issues we are trying so hard to ignore. Huge things cannot be easily controlled. but dominate enough of the small stuff and larger ones shrink to a much more manageable size. Leave it all to twist in the wind and any stiff breeze will take you for a mighty ride.
The choice is always ours to make; we all have the same options for coping with or caving under whatever pressure our lives contains. The rainbow really does exist, but if you never raise your head it might just as well be an imaginary figment. If the view does not suit, adjust and refocus. If thoughts attack disarm them before the whole army appears to claim unprotected territory.
Looking on the bright side keeps footsteps firm and detours to a bare minimum. Treading through shadow can be risky, heading in that direction willingly seems foolhardy in the extreme. Travel toward the light, keeping all shadows to your back. Do not imagine them as nonexistent, nothing disappears just because you refuse to acknowledge its presence. Instead, see yourself as always one step ahead of the darkness trap, head up and searching for the rainbow.
