I’ve re-read, re-listened and re-visited a lot of Brene Brown and Glennon Doyle Meltons work recently. Nothing is more comforting to me than these two women. They are so real. So raw. So loving. Relatable.
We all go through rough patches sometimes. We all feel pain. We all feel shame. And we can all bounce back. But we need to stay there for as long as it’s needed for the lesson to appear. Glennon reminds us that, the only things we ever really need; love, faith and hope, are the very things that can never be taken away from us. Have you thought of this? Does it ring true to you? We have all these fears of losing the things we love and it often holds us back in life. But pain is not always as dangerous as we give it credit. We get through things. If you’ve lived a while you know this to be true. You are much stronger than you give yourself credit for.
This is faith to me. It’s not about knowing that you will get everything you dream of, in the exact right time and place, it’s about knowing that whatever you get or don’t get, whatever happens, you will be okay. Hope is what keeps us in our tracks, getting up every morning. Love is the foundation of it all. That’s all we ever really need.
With all my faith, hope and love,
