Faith can wax and wane at times.

Life gives out beatings – I think we’ve all been there – and a lot of questions can pop up as to the point of it all.

Just the straight up “WHY?” pretty much covers all of it. ⁠

But it’s important to remember that you are so much more than the things that have happened to you.

They are absolutely pieces of your life but they are not the whole thing – no matter how bad things were. ⁠

Yes there can definitely be scars and deeper wounds.

But your capacity to heal those things – even if help is needed from others at times – is unmatched.

Love, compassion and wisdom heal many many things with time and effort.

And while you may feel broken, you’re still here and that matters. ⁠

Don’t ever underestimate how much you can drastically change your life even if you’ve been sitting in the mud.

With enough faith and courage to move forward and do what needs to be done, you can suddenly find yourself in a place where the past just seems so far away. ⁠

Be patient.

Take your time.

The actions you take with pure intentions of heart matter.

The ripples you create stretch far beyond what you can see.

The future rests upon those decisions.
