As people, we all have our own unique, individual, and interesting journies through life.
And on our personal journey, people, experiences and moments are/were placed in our lives to grow us. Sometimes the growth is seemingly marginal, other times significant but it grows us, nonetheless. In this time, the growth is a wonderful experience and many, many times, there are growing pains. We have to make adjustments in our lives, whether it is desirable at that moment or not. Those adjustments may be working more, studying more, spending less (or more…think investment), getting quiet, removing ourselves from situations, befriending new people, unfriending old people, stepping out on faith, etc.
These moments really show us something. It shows strength. It shows resilience. It shows determination.
Have patience. Have faith. It’s frustrating. It’s painful. It’s beautiful. It’s glorious. But it makes you. Choose humility over bitterness. Choose peace over chaos. Our small choices make up the big picture.
Be prepared for greatness to come out of this. But realize, that all great people have had their fair amount of tribulations and lost plenty of people who were with them. But keep going. You deserve it. But true to you and one with the universe.
You got this, warrior.
Such a magical word. Such a glorious virtue to have. Such a difficult thing to embody and put (keep) in to practice.
Patience with others. Patience with ourselves. Patience with what were are doing. Patience with our progress. Patience with our current state in our journey. Patience with our growth. Patience with our healing. Patience at the moment. Patience with the future.
