I think that the rawest, most brutal parts of our humanity… can be incredibly beautiful if we’re willing to see it that way. That’s the great disparity. … When we can really embrace every bit of our humanity, even the parts that shame us the most, there’s such great beauty in being cracked open. How much beauty there is in our brokenness.
— Joe Henry, interviewed by Krista Tippett on On Being
Trust me when I say things always get better.
You may not see it. You may not believe it but life is straightening itself out as we speak right now. God is aligning things for you. Every missed opportunity, every loss, every painful incident is being made up for. Bigger things are at work for you. Better things are coming your way.
When you know for sure that you have the power to change and it’s your choice to become someone who took a messy life and created something beautiful out of it, someone who took the hardships, rolled with the punches and learned how to punch back, how to fight and how to save yourself when you had no one else to save you.
Sometimes it takes everything going wrong for you to find what’s right and most probably you will find it within, no one comes back the same after a few losses or after major traumas but if you can collect all your scattered and broken pieces and start polishing them and start sharpening their edges, they find other ways to work for you, you piece them back together and form a new shape; a new stronger, more refined version of yourself.
