I’ve gone through a lot of things lately that have been extremely difficult, for me, for family, for people I deeply care about and for those I thought were friends.  In all of the darkness – there has been light!  I’ve found some amazing relationships that I’ve overlooked for a long time, too long.  My relationships with others have grown unexpectedly.  The support and help and love I’ve found I never dreamed I’d have during my darkest days.  I’ve talked until I’m blue in the face, I’ve meditated, I’ve cried, I’ve laughed and I’ve prayed.  I know that without the support of others I would not find myself in a better place.  I can’t ever undo what’s been done — but I can learn and move beyond the darkness.

 

There are 2 books that have been more than helpful to me throughout this journey —

 

The Language of Letting Go – Melody Beattie

Language

 

Jesus Calling, Sarah Young

Some days I think these books were written specifically for me – they hit home more often then not!!!

If I’ve learned anything from my choices, good and bad it’s this:

Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey.   They don’t need to, it’s not for them!!

I think this is what I want for my next tattoo as a reminder!
