Our life’s message
How many lives show others that we can be a hot mess on the way to pursuing our life’s masterpiece? Meaning, we don’t have it all together, figured out or dare we say…perfect while on our way to our goal.
When we can ditch the fear, façade and fakeness our messes can become beautiful messages. Ones that display the true “mess-terpieces” we really are.
Those, hot mess people that make progress to our masterpieces, piece by piece!
The sooner we realize this, the more of the other kind of peace we find for ourselves.
When the post about the “mess we find ourselves in” and how to get out was published, it really resonated! I heard from so many of you that you were inspired to “address your mess” and R.E.A.D.Y to get out! (so thank you for that!)
So often, when it comes to our life’s messes, we are led to believe that authentic transparency, even to OURSELVES, means that you need to prove your victim-hood.
When really, it only proves that Making Excuses Sabotages our Success.
Now let me clarify about victim-hood. There’s a distinct difference between a victim mentality, as I’m referring here and having been an actual victim of something.
Learn to embrace your life’s message.
Your MESSage is all about:
- the messes you’ve been through
- the mistakes you’ve made and learned from
- the mishaps that happened and even the one’s we’ve managed to avoid. (or repeat!)
When we can learn to step outside of our expectations as it relates to whatever it is we are going through, it will not only help us grow through it, but it may just change our perspective.
I know for me, it’s easy to “judge” someone from the outside until…
Until, you find yourself or someone close to you in a similar situation or circumstance that’s the very same one you were “judging”.
Then what happens? Your perspective changes.
Because of an event that happened in our family not that long ago, I’ve had a huge perspective shift on something that I thought I was very set in believing.
We’ve only begun to share our story with others, but it has not only helped us heal, but brought us and others encouragement.
Friends, if you get nothing else out of this post today, please hear this, our message (emphasis on mess) can help change someone’s future.
Your history and the story of the lessons learned from it, can be just the encouragement, catalyst, and message to change another’s future.
Think about that for a moment. How can your “mess” of a past be transformed into lessons? Lessons that help offer hope to someone. That hope can be just the way to help them piece together their less than hopeful masterpiece right now.
I pray that as we look around at all of the brokenness around us, may we refuse to see what’s pointed to us as worthless pieces of what once was.
Instead, see those pieces as part of a beautiful and yet to be, mosaic. A mosaic more about HIS-story displayed through us and our history.
We are amazingly beautiful MESS-terpieces and may God continue to bless our mess for each other’s sake!
Working my flawesomeness in midst of becoming a “mess-terpiece” right there with ya,
Are you having trouble with some pieces right now? I’d love to help you MAP out the pieces toward peace!
