“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” ~Rumi
Moving on is never easy. It is a process. A process we must experience, endure, and learn from as we continue along our journey.
In truth, the destination is death, but that end should hopefully lie in some far away time and place where the circumstances are determined by fate and not by our hand.
Having said that, it is imperative that we make the most of our journey. If we don’t know what we want out of life, we must endeavor to figure that out for ourselves. Upon doing so, we must seek it out. When we do, we must make the most of it, because the reality of life is that not everyone is granted the privilege of growing old.
Aging, in and of itself, is a process. Maturing from one phase of our existence to another is also a process. Everything in life is a process…and that includes healing.
Regardless of what it is you are enduring, don’t rush it.
Everything happens in its own time. Simply trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be at this precise moment. Einstein once said: “God does not roll dice with the universe.”
To that end, you must know there is no such thing as coincidences.
When you fall in love, that is not a choice. It happens as it’s intended to occur. When you face heartbreak, that too is beyond your control.
When you heal, it happens in its own time. You simply must surrender yourself to it.
Lose yourself in it, for in doing so, you will find something new about yourself. You will either forgive and forget, or you will recover and remember. Either way, you will live. You must live. Otherwise, what’s the point?
You’re still here.
Your journey has not concluded.
Fill the seconds of your life with grateful breaths, and use those breaths to whisper something sweet.
When your heart breaks, let it all out. All of it. The pain. The grief. The sadness.
Don’t rush to heal your heart, for it will be during that stage of healing that something good will slip inside.
