When I saw this image from Pinterest, I immediately thought of one of my favourite songs by Imagine Dragons, Roots (Do yourself a favour and watch on YouTube). My husband, son and I are, in general, totally obsessed with Imagine Dragons, so I relished the chance to bring them into a micro-story.
We have all had this experience before – of feeling at rock bottom and helpless, and perhaps even hopeless. In most cases, the people around us – our support – help us to get out of those dark places. Sometimes it is something far deeper – the survival, spiritual instinct that knows that trouble helps us to grow, even if we struggle to recognise our challenges as precious gifts.
Enjoy this week’s micro-story. And if you know someone in this dark space, do what you can to help.
