A Beautiful Mess

This year has been a perfect mixture of beauty and chaos. 

2017 was transformative and with a little bit over a month left in the year, I finally appreciate the beautiful messiness I experienced.

As frustrating as it was for me, letting go of my blueprint for 2017 was the best thing that happened.

I’ve never been more happier to embrace the journey, with its twists, unexpected detours and hidden surprises. 

Dealing with the unexpected shows us who we really are. Those moments help us examine ourselves. Our true maturity is determined when we cannot control life’s circumstances. How will we react when our plans fail? What attitude will we have when things don’t happen in the time that we expected them to?

Ultimately, we are being shaped into better versions of ourselves through the things we can’t control. 

I am hope to appreciate not having all the answers. I hope to trust that my process is developing me into the best version of myself.

  1. When I look back at my life, it was always the experiences that seemed most painful at the time that ended up being the catalysts for all the best times of my life. I think building resilience and knowing that you will always land on your feet no matter what is one of the essential building blocks of a happy and functioning life.

    I think the best thing to do is to dream and plan and have a blueprint for what you want from your life, but also be willing to embrace progress over perfection and course correct when things don’t go exactly to plan. 🙂

    Cheers,
    Zen
