Wait for the Moment

I can’t tell you you’ll be okay.

You might not be. 

Or at least you might not feel like you’re okay. You might feel a thousand miles from okay, every day, for the rest of your life. “Okay” might only come in flashes, gone as soon as you blink.

I can’t guarantee your future won’t be filled with as much pain, suffering, and struggle as you are experiencing now.

It will. 

Perhaps it will even be worse.

But I can promise you this:

I can promise you that life is made of moments, and if you lean into these moments—whether they be of pain or of joy—instead of running away in fear and denial; if you sink into the energy and feel everything the moment demands, only then will you truly know what it means to be alive.

So when the grief hits you right in the center of your chest, the center of your being. When it weighs on you, pressing you deeper into a hole of darkness that feels impossible to escape. When it threatens to hold you hostage there, let it. Sink into it. Fall into that hole willingly. Because only through that hole can you find the light again.

And when the light appears, reach out and grab it. Pull it to you. Let it lift you into it’s joyful embrace. Let the peace wash over you. Let the moment give you chills. Let the light take over your eyes so you can see the beauty that is being alive.

Let every moment overwhelm you because it’s only a moment. It will pass. And the next one might be just as bad or even worse, but it could also be better.

Wait for the moment when everything gets better. 

It’s coming.
