We spend so much time, in our lives, preparing, working, scheduling and creating, and simply living every day- hopefully, for what it has to offer.
Luckily, for the most part, we are not taken back, bombarded or whiplashed with traumatic times, or severe life changing circumstances on a daily basis.
Sometimes, however, we are.
We only hope to wake up, with pretty much the same secure foundation we had the day before, and can be content with walking through the day, unharmed and open to life's precious moments.
Sometimes, however, we don't.
We all face challenges in our lives. We all have days, we don't think it is possible to wake up and smile like everything is ok.
But, if we can, on these days, realize that hurt or not, things are as they are to be, for us to grow, there may be hope for us, yet! It is not always going to be easy.
It is also, not always going to be hard.
If, during any time, we listen to our feelings, and listen to our heart, we can still walk forward believing in ourselves and our path.
Our hearts will not lie, even when we feel we lost some of our hope.
But, at the end of the day, our lives are precious and have true meaning even if we can't understand what things mean.
The meaning of life, no matter which way it is going, is to trust in ourselves and our higher power to take best care and have our best interest at heart.
And if we would simply rather pass up the feeling that we are feeling? Remember no matter what the feeling, this too shall pass.
However, the best way to move forward, is to embrace the feeling, know it has purpose just as we do.
