If you've ever felt the pain of letting go, you know how difficult it can be. But if you're like me, you also know that letting go is necessary. Some things just don't work out and we have to accept there's nothing we can do about that. And that is OK.

Each step of my journey has been essential to make me who I am today, but sometimes I still find myself wishing for things that never were or are no longer. I think this is why it's so important to take time to reflect on our pasts so we can learn from them and use them as motivation for our futures.

Our world is changing, and we're all feeling the effects.

Maybe you've lost a job, clients, or had to move. Maybe you've been through a breakup, the loss of a loved one, or grief of what once was. Whatever it is you’re experiencing right now, it's hard not to feel like everything's falling apart. But what if things aren't falling apart—but falling into place?

While we can't control everything that happens in our lives, we can control how we respond. And when you find yourself facing change, remember: it's an opportunity for growth and reinvention, not failure or defeat. We don't know where this road will lead us, but we do know that it will take us somewhere better than where we were before—and that is the hope we must cling to. ♡

Sometimes, when we’re going through something hard, we may feel like the world is crashing down around us. In these moments, anxiety, fear, failure, and doubt creep in as ways to alert and protect us. If we choose to give “them” the space to breed, they will collectively conspire to bring us down into the rubble of our circumstances and situations.

But on the flipside, what if things aren't falling apart but falling into place?

When we look at our lives from a distance, we can’t always see the big picture—we see things through the lens of our past experiences, and the lessons we've learned. And it's not always easy to see the positive possibilities and growth when we're in the messy middle of it all.

We may not be able to predict what's coming next, but what we can do is keep the faith and trust that it will be exactly what we need to learn and grow in order to become who we're meant to be.

You’ve got this!

This is a question that I ask myself often, especially when I’m feeling like things are falling apart, which to be honest, they are. But what if… all these pieces that are falling are just part of the shedding process, what could be made possible, and who do I need to become to grow into this new version of myself? I don’t know who needs to hear this, but here’s your reminder… you are exactly where you need to be.

Don’t give up… God hasn’t finished His work in you or through you.

Let go… 🕊
