Has it really been almost a month since my last post?
I’ve been in a cave. A cubicle-sized cave. Buried in legal work at the firm, away from daylight. It’s dark when I leave home and it’s dark when I return.
The case I’m on is a beast – and it has required my full attention for the next couple of weeks. Six a.m. alarm clocks,twelve hour days, metro, home, and bed. Repeat.
Perhaps an additional week of it, but in the meantime here’s a shot from Belize. This amazing cave I explored on my way south with a wonderful couple I met at my lodge in San Ignacio. We hopped in the car and went from San Ignacio all the way south to Placencia. But on the way, we knew we had to stop at the Blue Hole National Park. Lo and behold, there was yet another cave to explore there: St. Herman’s Cave. After some hiking inside, I looked back and saw the light peering through.
Some days (or even months) can seem dark, grey, long and never ending. It seems it’s one thing after another. We get discouraged, we pause our plans, we get caught up in daily nonsense, we dwell on negativity and we lose the bigger picture. We mess up but then we get back up, we realize there’s only one life to live and we must march on toward our dreams. Because in the end, there is always light… light at the mouth of the cave. All you have to do is look up and you will see it.
