We are so eager for the end result that we often miss the beauty in the journey. Beauty doesn't mean "perfect"...often the transformation and growth from pain and strife is whats beautiful...seeing something rise after falling is what's stunning. Think of the sunrise...all the light that bursts up from sheer darkness...miraculous really that after every single darkness there is light again, and again, and again.
Life is not going to begin somewhere out there. We self-talk, "when I get through THIS, everything will be better"...well y'all thats delusional because that is not how life works. There's ebbs and flows of every day, every light, every dark. Try finding the "good parts" even when in the midst of a bad whole IS KEY, take it from me.
While I wish things were different for many reasons, I am grateful for the lessons. All of them. The good, the bad and ugly!
What brought me extreme sadness in the beginning of my painful journey, I now see, as the TRUTH unfolds...the universe did me a GIGANTIC FAVOR!
As I exhale thinking about it, I feel relief. Karma had my back even though I couldn't appreciate or see the gift at the time.
I work very hard every day learning about myself and others and finding ways to maximize my potential as a person. Checking in with myself is vital. I now am learning to listen to how I really feel and how others are REALLY making me feel. Though cleaning out the junk drawer is not always easy because of attachment for one reason or another...sometimes "letting go" is in our biggest favor. LET GO.
With that being said, I hope you LET GO to LIVE big and gratefully everyday.
