The Daily Prompt broken urged me to write today. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been broken in the past and likely may be broken in the future, but what I’ve learned is this:
Broken isn’t a bad thing to be because it lets in the light of healing through the cracks that open up when we feel broken.
Broken teaches us life lessons that we couldn’t have learned otherwise. While I never wanted to experience divorce, the separation of my family and all the other stuff that life has bulldozed over me, I can see how I have grown through my experiences and how I’ve become more authentically me by those experiences. Instead of remaining tightly bound by my own beliefs and limitations, I nestled in for awhile and then blossomed.
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. – Quote by Elizabeth Appell
When we share our life stories and experiences, we find comfort in knowing that most of us have a past (or present) that has included struggles. It’s how we move on from that experience that shows our true selves.
Breaking the beliefs and limitations that bind us engages a part of ourselves that ignites healing in ways that we could have never foreseen when we risk blossoming!
