Chopping Block

While difficulties press on us, flatten us out for a time, and always seem to draw from us more than we have to give, they also pave the way for the new and the better.

Through the valley’s of ‘death’, when it seems all is on the chopping block, are actually opportunities in disguise.

We just have to hang through the hardship, embrace the process, and grieve the losses.

In this, we are then prepared to take on the new, go after fresh visions, and we will look back one day, as see, that we were changed for the better.

We grew, acquired new perspectives, had our hearts opened in new ways, and if we had our choice, wouldn’t go back to who we were before.

It is a process to be sure. And while certainly not a nice process, always a good one.
