Insight & Inspiration.

It was my birthday. And I actually got very few personal birthday messages from people I thought I knew, and just in general. And I made the harsh realization that I lack connections with people these days. And then I thought about the few messages I did get. And they mean everything. Absolutely everything.

“For a wound to heal, you have to clean it out. Again, and again, and again. And this cleaning process stings. The cleaning of a wound hurts. Yes. Healing takes so much work. So much persistence. And so much patience. But every process has an end and an appointed term. Your healing will come, God willing. And like all created things, your worldly pain will die.”

“When you’re young, thunderstorms seem scary. Like the sky is angry at you. But now that I’m older, something about its roar soothes me; it’s comforting to know that even nature needs to scream sometimes.”
