Meditation comes in many different forms
A message from Brianna Wiest was my focus and reflection during watercolor practice and play this quiet Sunday morning. Her letter really spoke to my heart.
I know you are ready to be finished.
I know how much work you’ve done, how far you’ve come, and how much progress you’ve made.
I know that you can see a breakthrough on the horizon, and the closer you get, the more frustrated you become that you have not yet arrived.
I want you to remember the simple fact that there are beautiful things to be found in the process. There is something here, in this moment, at this phase, that you were meant to feel.
Everything you’ve been through — every dead end, every lost love, every heartache, every night of sadness, and of grief, every moment of confusion, every chance, every failure, everything that has ever lead you to where you are standing right now — it has not happened by chance.
Within every single one of those experiences was a lesson. Within every single one of those moments was a seed of your future that was being planted.
You see, you often have to learn what love isn’t to know what it is. You often have to do what you dislike before you realize what you love. You often have to become the person you are not in order to understand the person you are.
We interpret this as failure, when it’s actually an essential piece of the growth process.
What I want you to know is that the very moment you’re ready to throw your hands up and give up is also the very moment that you’re closer to a breakthrough than ever.
Please keep going.
Your new life is already here.
