Normally Monday is blocked out for showing others how to become a blogger, but instead, I am going to do something that some bloggers stray away from…making it personal. The past month has been craaaaazy! I’ve seen death, I’ve seen sadness, I’ve seen friendships change, I’ve seen betrayal, I’ve seen families being torn apart, I’ve seen struggle, I’ve seen pain. There were small sprinkles of fun and laughter, but mostly just a whirlwind of THINGS! Some of them were my things and some were not my things. A part of my journey to fulfilling my life’s purpose isn’t just filled with fun and exciting blog posts; there are major lessons and tests that I experience along the way. When I put everything together, it becomes the sum of a greater whole…each piece of the puzzle playing its own role. I firmly believe that everything that occurs in this lifetime is a lesson to be learned. Regardless of the trials that I go through, one consistent lesson that I always come away with is that life is so darn precious. It is so important to recognize/right your wrongs, to appreciate your blessings and to forgive others even when they don’t forgive you. I’m not afraid of people seeing my bad days because I am who I am. I’m in constant growth and change and perfection has never been claimed. I have done plenty of things that I am not proud of, but one thing is for sure…I can always humble myself enough to recognize/right my wrongs, appreciate my blessings and to ALWAYS forgive (even myself). Maybe this will be just another post that you read today, but I’m hoping that it will help someone along their journey and to be a reminder that you may be in the midst of your storm, but there will always be sunny days again.
