This too shall pass

“The bad news is nothing last forever, the good news is nothing last forever.” – J cole

Today this quote means a lot to me. I feel like this week I took a lot of hard punches. I came across this quote today after taking yet another blow. The first thought that came to my mind is something that my mom says all of the time, “This too shall pass.”

Whatever is going on will not last forever. We always make it to the other side of whatever obstacle we are going through. Each day you wake up and you have another chance. Another chance to make things right, and try again.

I know it seems hard now, but remember that it wont last forever. When good happens you want it to last forever but it sometimes doesn’t. When bad happens it seems like it never goes away, right? Right!  How ironic is that?

So I think about it this way. When the good times go away it seems like the obstacles are present right? True! But you must remember that the bad times wont last forever. So what that means is, the sun will shine again, and things will be all good again.

So I will leave you with the lyrics to, “Tomorrow,” from the movie “Annie.” Let this song marinate in your mind and remember that the tough times don’t last forever, Make your tomorrow better than today.



As I always say, this is simply my perspective and the thoughts that are on my mind. I never expect for you to agree with me, nor will I judge you for your opinion. I do not participate in negativity, drama, or bashing another person. I welcome and enjoy conversation so please leave a comment and lets talk.

  1. Ms Draya, I love your quote by Steve Jobs which I plan to send to a AA girlfriend who said, ” You are mocking me! My reply, ” Yes I am!
    I think you need to carry your conspiracy theories into action. Why let your neighbor fall in a ditch if you know the ditch is there. Just hidden. She’s anti-Jesus, anti-Dr Fauchi
    Anti- President Obama, Anti -Centers for Disease Control, anti- face masks, anti- vaccine, anti- American dollar, anti- sunscreem for blacks, anti- Black Lives Matter protests! But pro- Trump! Pro- ghosts. Pro- UFO! But Jesus was like her! And so was Nat Turner.
    I love the “palindrome’in J. Cole’s quote. Nice koan!
    Your language smiles! I like it!
