Some people call it the black dog that walks with you and I guess only those who have experienced it really know what I’m talking about – depression. It’s not a good place to be, you are always hoping that the black dog no longer wants to walk at your side. Sometimes you think there is just no point in being, – being anything. So when it is as dark as you think it is possible to be, who carries you? It is the unexpected crazy call from a friend, or a thank you for a small thing you did for them, or a request to give a hand because you can. The dark and the light are so closely woven that they define one another. When it is as dark as you know it, it is the light that someone else carries that can make the difference to the dark. You never know just who will need your light, so shine, shine not only for yourself but for the friends and strangers who need that light.
