J is for Journey
“It may be that when we no longer know which way to go that we have come to our real journey.” -Wendell Berry-
It is not until we get further down the path and become more self-aware that we can clearly see that the trials and tribulations were put in front of us to make us stronger.
For those who are most fortunate, they can take the worst thing that has ever happened and make it the best.
Once the original victim confronts their trauma, they can help others in a cyclical altruistic fashion that harmonizes healing.
Things happen to us that we can perceive at the moment as tragic. It can feel like things will never get better, but if we believe they will, they will.
It is our perception of the world around us that determines how we react to the circumstances that unfold in our lives.
How would we know there is light unless we have first experienced the dark?
Our journey almost always becomes clearer after we bend but don’t break.
The place where we push through when it would have been easier to give up.
A place where we see the lesson that is being taught in our journey.
The past’s mistakes and suffering have a lesson to teach us on our unique journey through life. But, look closely, and you will find that the light came soon after in all those dark times.
If you can not see the light right now, that means it is coming, so keep your eyes and heart open and let love and light shine through you; there is someone who needs you to help them through your story.
