I was thinking more about last week's blog post, and about seeing the beauty in our surroundings even when those surroundings might be hard, might not be our favorite.
But here’s the thing, my friends…these past few years I’ve recognized that, equally important to seeing the beauty in our life, in our situation….equally important to that in my life personally is seeing, naming and acknowledging the hard.
It doesn’t serve me to push the hard to the side, to ignore its existence, to only see the good. It doesn’t mean the hard will go away when I pretend it isn’t there. It doesn’t mean the hard will stop affecting me when I pretend it isn’t there…it just means I won’t deal with it in a healthy manner, I won’t look at it because, well, it’s hard.
My dear friends, if you are in the midst of the hard, in a space we all walk through at times in our lives, I hope you can see the beauty, I really hope you can. I hope, also and equally, that you can see and acknowledge the hard, you can recognize the effect it has on you, and you can move through and process the hard in a healthy and whole manner so you can come out the other side.
We can do hard things, my friends. We can do hard things.
Have an amazing week, my friends.
