Through The Dark

Beautiful words as usual from Sarah Doughty

Sarah Doughty

“I’ll keep trying to find my way through the dark.
Find my way back to you.”

Peace is something I’ve been searching for. Sometimes I find it, but it’s always fleeting. Perhaps it’s just me, but it feels as though I’m stuck on a turntable, unable to find my way back to where I need to be. Maybe one day, I’ll find that solace again. But until then, I’ll keep trying to find my way through the dark. Find my way back to you.

Because I know, sooner
or later, I’ll get through it.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.

  1. I understand these thoughts in my own life over the past few years – I’ve equated to it being on a hamster wheel but the turntable analogy is so much better – as a hamster shell implies when I got on I realized I’d just be tricking myself to think I’d get somewhere, as you can see there is no exit. But a circular structure on the ground, like a turntable, would imply I can step off whenever I want her I keep seeing the same struggles in new circumstances, the same people in new bodies, the same questions in new thoughts. Hopefully this is the year I figure out where the stop button is take control again! I’m sure trying!!

  2. I appreciate this post by Sarah for so many reasons but mostly because I can relate to being in darkness especially with my writing. For me, I relate the fwd movement to my writing more than my own reality. My reality is different than my writing space. Even though my writing often intertwines with my reality it’s just very different. Sometimes I’m just writing and other times I’m there, I have something say or I feel the, idk whatever it is. And whatever it is brings me to my next level of thought or learning or new goals… So this piece for me is more about writing than anything else. I like what you had to say. Made me think and I haven’t felt like thinking all day. Not even in the slightest bit. Lol Strangely I got a lot done even though I sat around not thinking most of the day. Hahaha
