My dear friend and I were speaking about how vulnerable we are when we awake in the middle of the night. Whatever problems or difficult situations that we have in our lives become unyielding giants in the dark. Fears, doubts, and sadness can be so overwhelming, seem so true. It feels as if things are not going to be ok, that hope is lost.
My friend mentioned how she would like to have a letter written to herself at her bedside. If she awoke in the middle of the night, reading it would remind her of all the things she cannot see through tired, anxious eyes. I wanted to write this letter for her, for myself, and for anyone else who has experienced these night giants To remind us that the morning will come and it will bring hope and lightness.
I know things feel so heavy right now, like there’s no way out, no hope. But things are not as they seem. This dark fog will lift come morning. The morning is so much wiser and truer than the nighttime. When you awake with the light, you will discover that hope has returned to you.
