If you follow this blog at all, you know that on Fridays I always spend at least a half hour inspiring myself by searching through miles of Pinterest 'Quote' boards. A simple phrase, or sentence, can say so many things to your heart and your mind. I know with complete certainty what my quote will be, as it rises to the surface each Friday and stands out among the many, many prospects.
I've recently had a rough few weeks. I am at a point in my life when I find myself moving so fast, and changing so much, that I lay in bed awake at night sometimes wondering if I will ever be the same after all of it. Will I ever go back to who I was after it slows? After much deliberation I believe the answer is no.
It's impossible after life-altering events to ever return to the way you were. That's why they are called "life-altering events" to begin with. Your life has changed, and you would be left behind in the dust if you didn't sack up and change with it.
Two simple, little, tiny words.
I will never be the same after this. I am forever changed. I am moving forward into, not complete darkness, but definitely a fog of uncertainty and I have to remember to always be brave.
I don't know who I will be when I finally see the other side of this. But, I have to be brave and remember that whoever I end up, and wherever I end up, I am exactly where I should be.
So this week, and this weekend, have confidence in your decisions and the change you endure at any point in life. Face life's events. You are not scared, you are brave.
