Learn from the Pain. Be inspired by the healing.
It’s been rough the last two months. Too many things have transpired and the last thing I want to do is go into detail about them. It seemed like every possible thing that could have gone wrong, went wrong and I was left to just.. deal. Dealing is extremely hard especially when you feel as if no one truly understands how you feel about all that’s going on.
Lately, I’ve had a lot of downtime to think about all the stressful things that have occurred in the last two months. While the rage, anger, and hurt grew and developed at rates that I couldn’t even fathom, tear after tear fell whenever I got the chance to allow them to. And it was a form of release therapy for me. A method to let it all go. A chance to embrace a healing.
Flowers grow out of dark moments. – Corita Kent
This isn’t the first time I’ve been disappointed, hurt, scared, or betrayed and I’m old enough to know that this sure won’t be the last. But with each hurt, each disappointment, each fear, and each betrayal, I’m taking it as a lesson. I’m taking it as a message. I’m receiving it as a blessing.
With each day, I’m learning from the pain. I’m learning to take an experience and make a better choice when faced with a new, but similar, situation.
With each day, I’m allowing myself to be inspired by the healing. It’s such a euphoric moment when you finally reach that point when you’re completely indifferent about something you thought would linger and hurt forever.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sky. -Rabindranath Tagore
And this healing.. My God, this healing is allowing me to get better at forgiving. More importantly, it’s allowing me to sincerely and truly LET. GO.
