Life is an ongoing process of elimination and discovery. Just when you think you have it figured out, your world comes crashing down. Life grants you what you demand of it, not what you deserve.
Life is not a bed of roses; there are paths paved with thorns. It’s not just you; we all have to walk our own road.
I can write an epistle about the different paths paved with thorns life has taken me through. The times I was kicked to the curb leaving me hopeless. The sleepless night and unnecessary worries that stole my peace of mind. Yes, I’ve had my share of self-pity, pity party, self-hating and low self-esteem. The good thing is you have the power to change your situation.
Where I am today is by the goodness and mercy of God. I stop depending on myself, by relying more on God. He specializes in turning broken dreams and people into something spectacular. Yes, you are spectacular!
Find the strength to push past the pain and disappointment. Take it one day at a time and forgive. By the way, forgiveness is not about the other person; it’s for your peace of mind. Get your joy back, and your whole outlook on life would change. You’re an unstoppable force when you are whole; spirit, soul, and body.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. Psalm 34:19
Wherever you find yourself in life make the best of it. Life is your runway, and the road is all yours.
“Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we get stronger and more resilient.”― Steve Maraboli
