The bottom. Life is not lived in a straight line, it has peaks and troughs. We only want the good but that is not how it works. The down periods are not pleasant, still they are necessary for our growth and for reaching our dreams. We have to go down in order to move back up again, and to move up further. Yet when we sense we are heading down we stop and try scrambling to go back to where we have been. This will only delay the inevitable. Go forward. Step into the ugliness of it. Once we get there we can only go up. Yes there will be battle scars of what we have endured. But now we no longer fear things becoming worse as we propel ourselves forward on the excitement of what lies ahead. The worst is over and we are wiser and more accomplished because of it, now the good times begin again.
