“After winter must come spring. Change, it comes eventually” – Lauryn Hill
The mere fact that spring comes after winter is a clear indication to all mankind that no matter what you are going through right now, it will pass and things will get better.
There are times when we feel as though we are in a situation that we will never get out of. It might be the thought that you will struggle or hustle for the rest of your life and it could even be the thought that you might suffer from a heartache for the rest of your life. Let us refer to these moments as ‘winter’ moments because all you ever want to do is stay in bed because the world just seems to be cold.
While you are in that ‘winter’ phase it is important for you to keep in mind that spring is yet to come and everything is a little brighter in springtime. Things will get better, do not rush your healing or your growth but work on it steadily every day.
No tunnel goes on forever – there is always light at the end of it. While you are there have some hope and trust that whatever you are struggling with will come to an end in due time. You might get the feeling that everything seems to be easy for everyone around you and no luck seems to come your way but don’t let that break your spirit.
The clock keeps ticking, the sun will rise and set again and the days will keep rolling. Do not dwell too much on what is not going right in your life at this stage, stay focused and positive in your way of thinking and remember that spring is yet to come so you are about to bloom. Change will come eventually.

I love this post
I’m glad you do ☺. Thank you
Reblogged this on thatdiary and commented:
It’s Monday! I have seen many bloggers that I look up to here on wordpress say, ‘don’t force content! Always write from within!’. I have quite a number of ideas for a few blog posts in my head, but they are not ready to be typed yet; so, instead of forcing them out, I decided to reblog a really good post that read today, which I feel I can actually relate to right now. I read a beautiful quote somewhere that says, ‘Don’t be discouraged! It’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock!’, and this quote goes beautifully with this post. I am sure you will love this piece.
Thank you so so much dear 💖. Truly glad you enjoyed the post. Have a lovely week 🌻
You deserve a comment. Of all the practitioners who treated me last, an African woman was the best. She put on gloves and shoved her hand up my ass. It hurt. She was checking for blood in my stool. Man, she had strong hands. I tell you, it’s so so good to be home. “There’s no place like home.” Thanks so much much for liking my posts.
Love how you compare life and bad times to winter and healing and better days to spring.
I love creative blogs and you have an creative mind.
Just a question though
what if someone have allergies and allergic to the spring weather and perfer the winter?
Lol just a random question dom’ t answer that.
But this was a lovely blog ☺☺
Keep it up
I’m loving the post, such a beautiful read with love & comfort.
Lauren Hill good choice Mbalenhle! This was a beautifully written post. It is important that we not let the events of the day keep us down. Even on the most rainy day the sun will come out at some point. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 Have a great day!
I nominated you for the Liebster award. Check out my recent post for more information❤
Thanks love, l will have a look at it 🌻
Lovely ideas! Let us all keep our hopes during all our winters.
It is very important that we do 😊
👏👏👏 Fantastic Mbalenhle. We must bud regardless of the winter or try to start budding so when spring comes it’s full bloom. Thank for ‘My kind of post’
😄l told you your ‘kind of post’ is coming up. Haha. Thank you Deshi 💖
Such a fantastic view point! I love the connection drawn from winter for spring and life!
Thank you for reading ☺
*posts! I hate spelling mistakes lol. xxx
You really are my favourite blogger! Your posts are always unique, insightful and interesting. Sometimes I go on reader and come across similarity and I just always appreciate and admire your viewpoint and that your post offer me something that no one else’s will.
I am in complete awe and reading this was just what I needed. Spring will rise as long as we keep going in winter instead of snuggling the months away inside. xxx
Thank you so much Laura 💖. I appreciate that. I’m glad you enjoyed reading this🤗
