Recently, I was having one of those days. The kind of day where you get dragged down by everything in your life that is not how you want it to be. Questions about the uncertain future, the regrets of the past, and the confusion of the present flooded my brain. So, I reached out to a friend who I figured may understand my current emotional storm. Her comforting words were so beautiful I just had to share them here.
And sometimes I wish that I could be more simple, and easy to please.. but I am not, and neither are you. Maybe people like you and me are old souls, swimming in a sea of new souls who haven't had lived enough to want a meaningful life. We are delicate flowers that need the rain to grow ..surrounded by cacti that could flourish on sunshine alone. Even when people like you and I get to a point where we are so content that we can't imagine life getting any better, it won't last long..because we crave growth and meaning.
I hope if you're reading this, you're lucky enough to be one of those people my friend described. So the next time it rains, just remember it's all there to help you grow. :)
