“For the new to come, the old in me had to go. I would be left with an uncomfortable hunger, a longing, for new life yet to be born” Every Bitter Thing is Sweet pg 28
“I knew who I was this morning, but I’ve changed a few times since then” Alice in Wonderland
It’s pretty safe to say I’m not who I used to be. I could elaborate, and I do in many posts; however the more pressing thing is…I’m also not yet the woman I am becoming.
I am a messy work in progress.
Prone to taking out my ugly on my sister (the one strong enough in my life to truly take it and understand what I’m really saying)
I am hard on myself (and others). I have high expectations that I fail to reach daily.
This week in particular.
Grace upon grace.
That’s what I’m given and also what I need to give out.
So, today, I’m focusing not on who I was or the past mistakes I’ve made.
Today, I’m focusing on grace upon grace for my own messy soul…and extending that same grace via little worldly kindnesses.
