DAY 7: The hardest thing you have ever experienced.
One of my favorite ladies and teachers said this once:
“There are some years in our lives that we would not want to live again. But even these years will pass away, and the lessons learned will be a future blessing.”
― Marjorie Pay Hinckley
The hardest thing I have ever experienced was the year 2016. It had some major highs and a lot of fun times but even more major lows. Honestly I was just trying to survive it. I could rattle off a list of everything that happened and all the things that I felt and people that betrayed or hurt me but I really don’t see the need anymore. My best friends stood by my side through the rollercoaster and so did my family. I finally had a wake up call from my angel BFF and I realized I had lost it. That was the turning point. And since then, I have let go and let love and God take over.
That made all the difference. I focused on the GOOD and the people that meant everything to me. I cut out everything that brought me down. I literally made a list of people I cared about and those were the only people who got my attention and time. I spent time alone and with the ones I loved most. I meditated more and cried more. I laughed more and dreamed bigger. I learned who mattered and who would have my back through the highs and lows of life. I learned who actually cared and who was just curious. I grew SO much it blows my damn mind. I started off the year with one of my very best friends in NYC and it was the beginning of the most magical year of my life thus far. Everything started to align and I began to trust in the Universe, God, Angels and magic of life 210% again.
2016 taught me grit and perseverance and how to LET GO of the people and situations that drag you down no matter how much in the moment you want to hold on. It allowed SO much MORE to enter my life that is good, wholesome and pure. That is the great thing with letting go…it creates space for the magic to enter.
Life is a journey and a never ending rollercoaster. You never know what people are really dealing with so being kind truly does matter. If you are in a low, remember it won’t last. And the sweet will be even sweeter because you will APPRECIATE it so much more. Learn from the Lows and you will be more Grateful and Humble on the Highs.
