We all go through things in life.. But I constantly remind myself that after the pain comes better days. Spirituality is what has gotten me through some of my toughest days.
Have you ever heard of the dark night of the soul? It’s similiar to depression. But it’s more like a spiritual depression. It causes you to question the world you once knew. It’s usually brought on by an uncontrollable event.
But the dark night of the soul is a complete transformation of the soul. During this time your soul begins purging all of what it once knew. Through the death of your ego your soul awakens. For those of you who haven’t heard of it and want to know more about it.
The video below is short and very informative.
I’m so grateful that I found my way out of the dark. I’m truly beginning to shine.
What a difference a year can make. Last June I was suffering from major depression. The difference in this June and last June is that I’m evolving into the woman that I was meant to be. Becoming more confident, self reliant and overcoming my fears.
Life isn’t always lollipops and gum drops. But everyday is a new oppurtunity to grow and accomplish our dreams. Instead of chasing all the wrong things. I’m now confidently chasing things that bring true fullifillment to me. Things that make a difference in other people’s lives and my own.
So often people say if they had known what they know now they would do things differently. But I would do things the exact same way. If I never went through the things I went through. I wouldn’t have the knowledge, wisdom and resilience that I have today.
My purpose is to teach, guide, inspire and to love. I look back at where I was… who I was and I thank God everyday for delivering me. He heard my cries and wiped my tears. But he knew my pain was for a bigger purpose. So many doors are opening for me and I am forever grateful. God has been with me all the way.
This is the beginning of my new life….. I was delayed but not denied.
The video below is of the actor Denzel Washington giving a commencement speech. It left me feeling empowered, optimistic and encouraged. I hope it does the same for you.
Just remember that no matter where you’ve been or what you’re going through. It’s all a part of God’s plan. Don’t ever live with regrets, resentment or hate. It stops you from being truly happy and enjoying life to the fulliest.
For the person reading this that is full of doubt and worry… Don’t give up you’re almost at the finish line. Let your pain push you into your purpose. Don’t forget to like, comment and follow.
