The journey’s of our lives are well planned sequences of growth and development.
How much of your life can you reflect on and see the ebb and flow as a valuable journey that has contributed to your inner strength?
While we don’t understand it all, and some of it certainly don’t like, if we take a step back, open up the lens on our life, we will see that it is not quite so random as we might have thought.
Embracing the journey past, enables us to embrace the journey forward; trusting the process of our days frees us to relish in the process of our days.
Waiting: It seems to take forever.
Yet there are a good many things we can do in the waiting.
How might we prepare for what is to come?
What might we invest in while we wait?
Are there any specifics to focus on while we have the time?
Who shall we journey alongside during this time?
Use the waiting in your life as a leverage to the things you’ve always wanted and imagined.
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.
