Life at the end of the Tunnel

The light at the end of the tunnel is your life; it’s the tunnel that’s temporary.

~ Michael Josephson

Often hear there is Light at the end of the Tunnel,  what if that is the end of  life.  A exhausted physical body slowly walking toward the Light believing that path would lead to eternal peace where is no pain, no more sorrow.   Would it be considered optimistic giving up the fight in a miserable life?

 Theory of light at the end of the tunnel provide comfort for terminally ill patients, but not so much for those who aren’t satisfied with their lives?

Life is a Journey to experiment, to cherish moments of ups and downs.  Let’s live!

Take too much Time,
and Time will Take You.
~ Lisa Kleypas, Love in the Afternoon

There are things in life causing us to hesitate.  Time isn’t wasted to find out what we are heading, we may have lesser time each day as we are trying to decide.

Colin Powell’s Inspirational Speech

The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting people. As you grow, your associates will change. Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you to stay where they are. Friends that don’t help you climb will want you to crawl. Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream. Those that don’t increase you will eventually decrease you.


Consider this:

Never receive counsel from unproductive people. Never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to the solution, because those who never succeed themselves are always first to tell you how. Not everyone has a right to speak into your life. You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person. Don’t follow anyone who’s not going anywhere.


With some people you spend an evening: with others you invest it. Be careful where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of life. Wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friendships. If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl. But, if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights.


“A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.”


The simple but true fact of life is that you become like those with whom you closely associate – for the good and the bad.


Note: Be not mistaken. This is applicable to family as well as friends. Yes…do love, appreciate and be thankful for your family, for they will always be your family no matter what. Just know that they are human first and though they are family to you, they may be a friend to someone else and will fit somewhere in the criteria above.


“In Prosperity Our Friends Know Us. In Adversity We Know Our Friends.”


“Never make someone a priority when you are only an option for them.”

“If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters.

Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude..”..

Standing Tall ~ Snowy Owl

Although Alone in the Mist
Standing Tall is a Must.
~ Clare Patrick

Snowy Owl: This yellow-eyed, black-beaked white bird is easily recognizable. It is 52–71 cm (20–28 in) long, with a 125–150 cm (49–59 in) wingspan. Also, these birds can weigh anywhere from 1.6 to 3 kg (3.5 to 6.6 lb).[3] It is one of the largest species of owl and, in North America, is on average the heaviest owl species. The adult male is virtually pure white, but females and young birds have some dark scalloping; the young are heavily barred, and dark spotting may even predominate. Its thick plumage, heavily feathered taloned feet, and colouration render the Snowy Owl well-adapted for life north of the Arctic Circle.

Perspective of Darkness



“People often believed they were safer in the light, thinking monsters only came out at night. But safety – like light – is a façade…the only way to truly be safer, was to accept the dark” “
