I’d like to think that I’ve grown from who I was to who I am.
I’m different than I used to think I ever could be. I’m happy. I’m trusting. I’m me.
Hiding from the sun, yet fearing the shadows- that is a thing of the past. Today, I am my own sunshine. I flood light on my shadows, discover my demons, and put them to rest.
I’d love to think that who I am in this moment is who I might be forever, but I’d be wrong, would I not?
There are more tragedies to come. More sleepless nights. More tears. More resentment towards those who live in enough.
I’ve worked hard to build myself up, but that is not to say I will never fall again.
The point is to continue our growth in each hardship. To flourish and blossom despite the thunderstorm that weighs us down.
It’s not easy. It’s not always fun. Sometimes, you will want to give up and take the easy way out. It’s okay to feel overwhelmed.
It’s just not okay to let those feelings control you and hold you back.
Right around the corner, if you can just make it a little longer, something amazing is awaiting your arrival.
We each have our own path to follow. We each have a different destination. We each have a purpose.
God never made a mistake, meaning you are not a mistake.
He crafted you carefully and lovingly, and He did the same with your path.
Though you will stray, just remember to come back. Because no matter what you do or what you say, He will be standing in the middle of that dusty old road that you haven’t seen in who knows how long.
And when He sees you, finally coming back to Him, there will be no punishing glare. He will not shun you, nor make you regain your right to happiness and eternal life.
He will simply open his arms to you, being so recklessly in love with His creation, that a simple “I’m sorry, Father” will be all that is needed.
Grow and grow and grow until you’re peering over the tops of the clouds.
Until you’re sweating from the close proximity of the sun.
Until you are dancing within the spaces between the stars.
There is a reason for what you are going through, and there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
I would have never drug myself from sadness had someone not told me that every single thing happens for a reason.
So here I am, being that same person for you. And now it is your turn to grow and pass the message along.
Everything happens for a reason. Nothing is by chance. Take a lesson from it now, and your life it will enhance.
