The fun part about that is when you turn to the sun and walk with the sun on your face the shadow is behind you. Then you only need to focus on what is ahead of you and let go of the things behind you.
I had a friend who was upset about everything and feared everything. As we discussed what was upsetting him, we quickly discovered all those events were in the past and he was carrying the past into his future, which is why he feared everything. We took each event changed his thoughts about it and released them. Slowly he changed to focusing on the good things and his dreams. He spends all his time working on dreams and making them come real.
You see my friend he turned from the shadows to the sun. He took the steps and let the past go and his life changed to focus on good. Start focusing on the good in your life and you will see good more often. When you hit a bad situation change your thoughts to good and move forward.
Much joy and love to you and yours
