Me: Hello God.
Me: I’m falling apart. Can you put me back together?
God: I would rather not.
God: Because you aren’t a puzzle.
Me: What about all of the pieces of my life that are falling onto the ground?
God: They fell off for a reason. Take some time and decide if you need any of those pieces back.
Me: You don’t understand. I’m breaking down.
God: No, you don’t understand. You are not breaking down. You are breaking through. You aren’t falling apart. You are falling into place. Take some deep breaths and allow those things you don’t need to fall off. Let them go.
Me: But what will be left of me?
God: Only the very best pieces of you.
Me: I’m afraid of change.
God: You are not changing. You are becoming.
God: Becoming who I created you to be. A person of light and love, filled with compassion and goodness.
Me: There goes another piece.
God: Let it be.
Me: So I’m not broken?
God: No….but you are breaking like a new dawn. You are becoming. And that is a good thing.

I thought this was a perfect blog for today. Our lives are in a constant stage of change. We need to embrace it even while going through sometimes difficult transformations. Just be mindful of what parts of you are allowing to fall to the ground. Grow and change in a positive way. Just as a caterpillar goes through it’s transformation to become something quite beautiful, so are you.
Thank you for stopping by. Coffee is perfect this morning. Have a wonderful day. And be grateful. ♥️
