Hope, faith, belief in the power of positive thinking and the loss of fear* are a few of the secrets to living a happy life. Whether it’s money, illness, relationship, or societal problems, with time and the right frame of mind, it’ll surely pass. In other words, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
What does light at the end of the tunnel mean?
According to dictionary.cambridge.org, it’s “Signs of improvement in a situation that’s been bad for a long time“. I don’t like to complain, but there have been a lot of things in the past year that I’d be very happy to see signs of improvement in. For example:
I’m cautiously hopeful that the discovery of vaccines to prevent the virus will lead to a quick ending of the pandemic.
Recession of 2020**
As far as the recession goes, there’s a sense that the economy and the stock market are rebounding. The next step will be to find a path for businesses to successfully reopen and employees to thrive as they return to steady work. Guess we’re all looking for the light at the end of the tunnel.
A Country Divided
Although it may be too soon to say this, I’m hoping violent rioters will see the dangerous path they’re taking. Let’s look for a return to unity as we rebuild the country and enjoy peace again. Looking forward to the time when the anger will pass.
On a personal note, there are a few nasty divorces coming up soon in my family.
I don’t get it…why does it have to be so ugly?
This, too, shall pass.
When you think about it logically, you realize that things will get better. We won’t be suffering from Covid-19 forever. Pandemics come and, eventually, they go.
We’ve been through recessions before. Although they’re nerve-wracking and challenging, with perseverance we’ll come out in a better place on the other side.
The installation of a new president and administration affords us an opportunity for a fresh start. To be sure, that’s definitely a light at the end of the tunnel.
Finally, any divorces in my family or yours will be history by this time next year.
