Hello my crazy and amazing readers,
I don't know about you, but this whole journey has opened my eyes and heart to so much. I've learned tons about myself, my lack of faith, how to gain that faith back with strength, what love is really about, how strong and yet weak I am, and so much more. Yet one thing that has really risen to the top in the midst of this pain- how letting go of the past can bring such freedom to this blessed life.
For me, letting go of where I've been, loving myself for who I am now, and forgiving have been huge a part of this journey, just as much as the physical pain. This physical pain has stopped me in my tracks, opening up a gap of time for me to reflect on the woman I am, and the woman I want to be. And although this pain has kicked my butt in so many ways, I am thankful for the growth in me that has to do with moving forward, cause holding on to the past only weighs you down, filling your life full of rocks, making it almost impossible to fly. So if you are struggling with letting go of your past- your emotional pain of either dealing with your invisible illness or other pain in your life- you might want to check out this great post from a blog I enjoy following. You can check it out HERE. This beautiful post deals with how we often carry around our struggles as badges of honor, instead of letting them roll into the ditches, where they belong. Or maybe that's just stubborn little ol' me. =)
