This past month has been one of the hardest in my life and all I can say is thank you.
Thank you for pulling me apart. My heart breaks but I know it can rebuild itself, stronger and with more love to give.
The present feels like a camera image I can’t focus, the image blurry and too close for clarity. But I know as time passes and I grow still inside, the image will come into focus and I will see that this is part of a bigger picture. One too big for me to haver ever captured all at once.
The twist in all of it is that life never slow down for us to gain this stillness. We must learn how to cultivate it inside amidst a world that never stops. Be still, be patient, don’t hurry outcomes, but oh yes, please grow, please adapt and please don’t stop moving forward.
So I break open amidst deep breaths. All while putting one foot in front of the other. Onward, forward.
Understanding that conclusions aren’t promised for today or even tomorrow.
Knowing that today my focus is stillness, my lesson is patience and my teacher is time.
Mind clear of expectations, heart brimming with faith.
