Can I be honest?
The past few weeks have been heavy in my world. A lot of push and pull, and trying to figure out why certain things refuse to come together while other things continue to fall apart. This week was the first time I recognized it for what it really was:
Sometimes our plans don’t pan out because we’d never step into what we’re actually supposed to be doing if things were shaping up how we wanted. We’d never take hold of the best our lives have to offer because we’d be so comfortable with lives, careers, people, and plans that are just, well . . . decent. Even when it doesn’t feel quite right.
So on this Friday I’m grateful that God isn’t letting me stay comfortable enough to settle for decent, even though it’s been uncomfortable in the in-between.
Live your best lives, Good People, and don’t let pain distract you. Sometimes it's supposed to redirect you, teach you how to unburden yourselves. Sometimes it’s supposed to teach you how dope it can be to let things go that aren’t serving you well. Eventually you’ll see it come together. Growing pains take time. I’ve just adjusted to the time change.
