There will come a time when things fall apart. You empty your bank account. You lose your marriage. Your dream job expires. You are gossiped about. You make mistakes you didn’t think you could make. You drop too much weight and lose half of your hair. You feel alone, like there is no coming back from this. You fail in front of people you swore you could trust, and they betray you. You see your parents and grandparents go. You watch the framework of your life dissolve.
But you must know that in this time, you also heal. You find family. You stop betraying yourself. You make friends who aren’t afraid of your shadows. You build your own business. You make a beautiful home. You feel free. You see you’re allowed to enjoy your life. You do things you never thought you could do. You paint again. You become someone you love. You don’t play with poison. You open yourself to love. To beauty. To what is true.
When you’re in the middle of the rubble, start building. This is only one chapter. You are designed to create. So create again.
