Trust me on This

So much of life is a huge unknown.

Where should I live? What career should I follow?

What will life look like if I do this or that?

Should I have a child? Would I be a bad mom?

Should I live on my own?

Should I marry this man?

Should I stay in this marriage? Is it really worth the risk?

Can I trust him again? Can I trust anyone?  

These are all huge unknowns. Time and chance place a role.

And that’s why we are scared.

It’s beyond our control.

But there’s still cause for hope in the deep of the night

When the darkness descends, and you’re starting to sweat.

You’ve gone through things before.

Things that didn’t work out.

Yes, it’s awful. It’s hard.

Yet you made it. You’re still here.

You don’t hold all the cards.

You don’t know what might change.

But there’s one thing you know:

You are strong.

You’ll survive

When you come to the edge of all that you know, you must believe one of two things: either there will be ground to stand on, or you will be given wings to fly.”  – O.R. Melling

  1. A third option could be to encounter someone, or a group of people, who help you go beyond what you know. Call it the wind beneath your wings. This is like Obiwan Kenobi mentored Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars movie. Situations like this provide a support group of sorts. Much like this excellent site right here!
