wisdom wednesday


Sorry I’ve been M.I.A for the past couple weeks. My life has been in a constant state of flux and for once I’m ok with it! That is a MAJOR MIILESTONE for a reformed control freak. I started a new job and I couldn’t be happier. However, it got me thinking how grateful I am to everyone that stood by me when things were in complete disarray and I had no idea what the future held. We all go through rough patches in life. Instead of letting those memories haunt us, I think we should wear them like a badge of armor. Falling apart was literally the best thing that happened to me because it allowed me to see people for who they are and not who I thought they were. It’s easy to be someone’s friend when life is easy peasy, but it takes a TRUE friend to stand by you when you’re just a shell of a person that feels like you have nothing more to give, no purpose, no future. To every person that loved me, encouraged me, and helped me in my darkest hour THANK YOU! You restored my faith in humanity and allowed me to realize my purpose in life is to help encourage others. No accomplishment will define me more than the people I have helped or hopefully inspired to embrace life and al it has to offer.

If you have the opportunity to lift someone up today, DO IT! You never know how a few kind words can have a lasting impact on someone’s life.
