Hello Evolving Girl,
Things happen in life that leave us changed… different than we were before they happened.
Sometimes, friend, the changes are amazing and wonderful and awesome…yet sometimes they leave us feeling wounded, raw and confused…maybe even broken. Either way, we are changed because of what has happened…even if we did not set out to be changed.
Life has no intention of letting us stagnate, beautiful you. Every new day is here to teach us new things. Each relationship lasts exactly as long as it is supposed to last, sometimes for just minutes, sometimes for years, sometimes for a lifetime…each relationship leaves us changed in some way.
Every experience makes us know just a little more than we knew before…and sometimes our wisdom comes from living through things we wish we didn’t have to live through. Even more often, we get to live through big and little experiences that blow our minds with their beauty and awesomeness as long as we keep our eyes open for it. Those things leave us changed too.
When life takes us down unexpected roads, roads that we probably never would have chosen had we been given the chance…the best thing to do is to is look around and learn as much as we can, take in all the goodness we can, strengthen ourselves where we can and just know that life is always moving and whatever season we are in right now…a new one is just around the corner. So enjoy it when it’s wonderful and learn from it when it is difficult. Tomorrow you will know even more than you did today because of it…and that is what life is all about.
Walk tall and confidently into your life. You are doing a wonderful job… and each new day you are getting stronger, wiser and more like you. It is a beautiful sight to behold.
