My husband showed up unexpectedly last Tuesday and hijacked my day physically and hijacked my week emotionally. As you can tell from what I wrote in my last outfit post, I was utterly confused by it all. And even though I made sure to mentally document the negative feelings and the overwhelmingly obvious emotions pulsing through my body in the 5 hours we spent together, I couldn’t help wondering if I had made the right decision.
5 days later, I’m not wondering anymore.
Sometimes the only real learning we can come by is through difficulty and struggle. Staying open and aware in the tough moments to recognize the blessings is maybe the hardest part. But each time we notice and then remember not to doubt our instincts, our intuition and decisions, the closer we get to living a life we can stand by… a life that we choose, create, and ultimately, a life that we love.
This is why it’s important to remember that even the worst moments in life, the most horrible situations, the hardest challenges we fight, are just great lessons in disguise.
