It’s there.

By Stephanie

I was talking to a friend, sharing a certain experience and trying to grow through my feelings, about the letting go of past hurts, past circumstances.

Sometimes do you think that holding on to the hurt can be more painful than the hurt?

It feels that way sometimes. It clouds the mind. It distracts from what is good in our lives. It zooms its focus in on the bad.

Could it be we are fearful of the unknown if we let go? Could it be we are giving up and giving in, if we forgive?

Or could it open up a doorway to a whole new perspective… a peaceful heart, a fresh start?

Above all, in the hurt, in the uncertain times, in the whirlwind of your life’s week, there is always, always, always a reason (small or big) to give thanks.

Look up, look down. Look all around. Until you find it.

    Oh so very profound. Stephanie, you’re such a soulful beauty. I appreciate you deeply. And I know pain… and I know that moving past it is so freeing. There is such joy and peace on the other side.
