Hi everybody! a forewarning, but this isn't going to be your typical transformation Tuesday. I am not about to post a bunch of pictures showing how I used to look compared to how I look now. The transformation I am going to share has to do with a shift in my thinking recently. Although I have to show you some pictures from last night's crazy snowstorm first!
It was super pretty but I'm telling ya, it can be spring at anytime!
Alright, to my transformation.
Lately I have been thinking a lot about all the different people that come in and out of someones life and obviously my own. As I was doing so I couldn't help but become a little down, I guess I had never really given it much thought. It seemed as if more people were going out of my life than staying. I began to question why it appeared to be this way and I started to question if it was something wrong with me. And then it hit me like a ton of bricks; Nichole, everything that happens in life has a purpose, you know this.
I'm pretty sure we all have had those moments in life. The moments where even though you know something you still have difficulties with every once in a while. This doesn't make us negative, it makes us human.
Each person that comes into our life comes into it for a reason no matter how long they stay in it. It can be hard to realize this when people matter to you; especially if you are someone like me that cares for others very very much. It also can be hard to realize this when people leave in a bad or hurtful way. All the people we meet affect our lives; they all have something to teach us and help to create who we are and who we will be.
Happy and positive relationships in our lives make us feel fulfilled, supported and connected. They help us open up and learn to love. We tend to feel encouraged which allows us to believe in ourselves and where we are headed. They are a key role in us getting the most out of a day. All of us have those certain people in our lived who make everything better, even if it wasn't bad to begin with, just because of their presence.
On the contrary, relationships where we get hurt or feel betrayed actually have the biggest importance in our lives believe it or not. These relationships help us to learn patience and understanding. However, it is hard to accept because we don't understand how some people can just turn their backs on us in an instant. This is what was getting to me recently and it's essential to remember what was stated above; each person has their time they are meant to be apart of your life - some are forever, some are for years, and some are even just for months or weeks. But without these relationships we would never realize what our full potential or strength really is.
Be thankful for those in your life and be appreciative for all you learned from those that are no longer; with them you will be who you're meant to be.
What are some thought transformations you have had?
