It is only the water that is spilled, the calabash is not broken ~ Mauritanian Proverb
Yes, life has dealt you many blows, but the fight is not over, you are still here. Yes, you are out of breath and giving up, but you are still breathing. Yes, you have lost many things, even people, but yet here you are. Yes, you lost your job, but you still carry your gifts, talents and skills. Yes, he walked away, but you are still fearfully made. Yes, she walked away, but you are still wonderfully made. Yes, the mistakes of the past are catching up with you and weighing you down, but you can shake them off and soar.
Evolve into healing! Only the water is spilled. Don’t drown in it. Your heart is raw and hurting, don’t say it is over. Your soul is ripped and aching, bounce back! Your spirit is shaken up, spread your wings. Your substance, your worth, your value are who you are, and not the water that spilled. The life experiences that made the water spill in your life came to chisel you into a man or a woman of character. They came to shape you, and conform you into recognizing and understanding who you truly are and direct you into your, purpose and destiny. Your future, your new beginning await you. You have not scratched the surface yet. Wake up from the weight, of self-pity. Rise up, from the dust of doubt, fear and anxiety. Steady yourself and shake them off. Find your feet, find your wings.
But those who trust in the LORD for help will find their strength renewed. They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak. ~Isaiah 40:31 (Good News Translation)
Your life experiences spilled over, in the worst way possible, but you can fight to remain intact, spirit mind, body and soul. You do not have to succumb to falling into pieces. You do not have to lose your essence or waste your substance. You do not have to lose yourself, your soul, your mind or your spirit and yield to nothingness. Even out of nothing a thing can be created. Out of your pain and tragedy, beauty can be created.
Take your uncertainty and build something wonderful. Take your loss and create a blessing. Take your emptiness and birth something lovely into being. Take your heartache and evolve into healing. Take your agony and create joy. Take your pain and create sunshine. Take your darkness and create light.
