It’s been a while!
Not necessarily a great while, but a while none the less.
The past few months have truly been a trial and a test for me in many ways. I find it truly ironic, and maybe even a bit humorous - many of us ask to be these strong people, with a sense of understanding, and a clarity in wisdom. However, we sometimes fail to see how that sort of true-life learning is attained. Through those very situations that call for strength, understanding, and wisdom - we often call pain.
In order for us to grow in strength, understanding, and wisdom – we have to accept our imperfect nature. Moreover, accept that as we have grown in life we have acquired habits. Some of our habits been served us very well, and some have held us back from reaching our fullest potential. When we are in the midst of the strongest storms, only then are we really capable of seeing the flaws and habits that will no longer serve us well as we move into the next phase of our life. This is the growth and development in strength, understanding, and wisdom. This is the realization that, some traits/habits about us as a person must go. We have to grow better. By us to reach our fullest potential, we open ourselves up to not only see our purpose, but deliver on it.
This is where I have been for the past several months, a feel I have not felt since I was in my senior year of college back in 2008-2009. With a smile on my face, and a great deal of pain in my soul. There are some habits that I needed to realize and then to break and get rid of to get to the Tiffany 2.0. To reach and deliver on my fullest potential. To serve my purpose and calling. Does it suck, yes! Did I understand when I prayed and asked to be this person what I was actually asking for, no! Would I trade this learning for a ridiculous amount of money, no. Would I ask for it all again, yes (well maybe not proactively ask...)! I am seeking to live a life in grace, not perfection. I will stumble, I will fall, and I will get back up-dust myself off and keep on moving. Because that is what life is really about…
