It has been a while. How is everyone?! Things have been interesting for me. Some areas taking flight, others seem a tad bit stalled but blessed nonetheless. I wanted to just send a quick message about transitions. I know that when life is moving so quickly, there isn't much time to stop and really think about what is happening around you. To really focus on the areas of your life that might really need your attention.
For me, I noticed that with our being 7 months into the year, SO much has happened and changed in the last 7 months. So many changes in relationships, in my career, how I view people (how they view me) and just the transitions I'm experiencing in life. I don't know that I have really given myself enough time to process it all. But I've grown....
I realize that some people truly are in your life for a reason and a season. Take the lessons they taught you about love and pain and use those to not only better your world but also the world of whomever enters your next life. Be better, not bitter.
I realize that some people will never celebrate you. It doesn't have to be anything you've done. It doesn't have to be anything you've said. It is simply because your love and light is so very bright. Some people are blinded but what they can't understand and confused by the person you are that they could never be. Don't dull your light but don't be afraid to share it either.
I realize that honesty is important. Honesty about myself, honesty within myself, honesty with others. I realize that authenticity is where I belong. I feel my best when I'm being the realest. If I have to be anything other than myself to belong, I don't need to be there.
These are just a few lessons I've learned and some have been painful transitions for me. Love lost and friendships found. So I've tried my best to allow myself the space and the grace to adjust. Things aren't all bad even when they feel that way and believe me every single experience is preparing you for something greater than you've ever imagined. I try to live each day believing that I can't fail because I know who orders my steps and HE has not failed me yet.
So whatever transition you are facing right now, give yourself the space to feel whatever you need to feel and the grace to get through it. Remember, we might bend a bit, but we never break.
Here's to a new month full of transition and amazing possibilities!
