Lets face it »» life. IS. messy!
People can look all put together on the outside, but behind each beautiful face is a mess somewhere.
Emotionally we hurt. Spiritually we stumble. Relationships ride the roller coaster. Health & wellness have good and bad days. Finances can stress us out. Our professional lives are a journey with bumps in the road.
The perfect life is an illusion.
As long as we are breathing, it’s inevitable, we WILL encounter another mess. The best way to deal with each mess is to GO. THROUGH. IT.
Yep. EMBRACE IT looking for these 3 things:
- OUR PART. What role do we play in the “mess” – where have we been wrong? Where did we trip up? What is our responsibility to own to make things right or to improve?
- A SOLUTION. It’s so easy to get stuck in the mess, but to get through it we need to have a solution mindset. Keep in mind, sometimes we are not a part of the solution — acceptance is important if this is the case.
- THE GOOD. Find IT! Seeing the good in messy places can be difficult, but it’s there somewhere! Look for it! Pray. Ask God to open your eyes to see it!
My life is messy.
I screw up all the time. I make wrong decisions that lead to not so good consequences. Things fall apart. Others do things that hurt me. My “way” is not always the best way.
BUT. I found, accepting that life is messy helps get me through all the ickyness. (along with my faith, grace, and a WHOLE lot of forgiveness!)
