Sometimes it is frustrating finding myself at a juncture I thought I had already been passed. Yet if I am there again, and I am paying attention, there are very different aspects to reassure me of the growth I have already made and the aspects that are left to be figured out. It is important to take the time to recognize that growth even if there is still more I want to see because, in each moment, we are all in our own perfection. Imperfectly perfect, just the way we are, in each instance. Every stumble is just one more learning opportunity.
I'm grateful for the stumble to remind me I am still growing. I'm grateful for the grace to apologize. I'm grateful for the understanding and love I have received in return. And I'm grateful to see another opportunity to learn. I'm grateful to forgive myself (and yes that did take a bit longer) and to know that I am still living in my perfection as I stumble and as I make amends. I'm grateful for this journey, the difficult and the beautiful because it is uniquely my own and yet mirrors aspects of the journey we all take.
What does your road look like today? Have you given yourself credit for the bumps you have overcome? Have you forgiven yourself for the stumbles? May your day be blessed with love and friendship to accompany your path and may your heart find peace in this journey. Have a beautiful day!
