I saw this post a while back.
I’ve been holding on to it, waiting for this day to come & it has finally arrived.
While some pretty amazing things have happened over the last few years, there have also been some major changes, health issues, fears, anxiety and loss.
I think it’s fabulous that we all share our good times on social media, but it’s also important to keep it real.
No one is exempt from difficulties, they are simply a part of life, but that’s where our strength & tenacity come from. Just like when we exercise, our muscles tear & break down, only to rebuild stronger than before, same goes for life. It is our teacher.
We learn from our experiences.
How enlightened would we all be if life was filled only with rainbows & sunshine?
Where would our true growth come from?
I’ve dug deep. I’ve battled the storms. I’ve tapped into resources. My faith has deepened & for the first time in a long time I feel peaceful & hopeful.
I know I will be okay.
I have been blessed with a truly amazing support system which I am incredibly grateful for. We are not meant to go it alone. Lean on those around you. We shouldn’t be embarrassed by our stories, we should wear them as a badge of honor. Being raw & real is where the true inspiration is at.
Wherever you are on your path, I encourage you to keep moving through, one step at a time. No storm lasts forever.
There is magic in everyday & it’s our job to find it.
Happiness is an emotion, it’s transitory.
Peace is freedom. Search for the latter.
We all have an inner strength that far exceeds our wildest imagination & we must tap into it.
Squeeze everything you can out of each day. ❤️
