What’s the difference between shade and shadow?
You might seek shade on a sunny day and perhaps avoid shadows on a dark night.
Both are caused by the obstruction of light.
What about in your life?
Do you avoid the shadows?
Do the temporary dark moments cause you anxiety and fear?
When you look at an object or painting it’s the shadows that give it perspective. It’s the shadows that provide the depth and richness that is often admired. The same applies to your life too.
It’s difficult to accept or embrace hardship but without it life would be flat, you would be missing the dimension of depth.
Remember, for a shadow to exist there has to be a source of light and the light can come in a variety of forms. The most powerful light will come from inside you. It will be your perspective of how you view the shadows.
