It is Well With My Soul

It has taken a long time and a great deal of healing to reach a point where I can say “it is well with my soul”.  It is a journey that I knew in my mind and in my heart was absolutely necessary.  What did I learn along the way?  I learned that life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.  That when in doubt, just take the next small step.  That life is too short and to learn how to enjoy it.  To make peace with your past, so it won’t screw up the present.  To cry with someone because it is more healing than crying alone.  That it is never too late to be happy, but it is all up to me and no one else.  Time heals almost everything, and I just needed to give it time.  Most of all this journey has taught me that when it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer. 

What I also learned along the way is that this is a hurting world.  That everyone has wounds.  Some wounds are so deep that they don’t think they will ever recover.  I have to say that it takes tremendous courage to put yourself on a path of recovering.  There were days when I could not imagine anyone’s wounds being worse than my own.  Then all I had to do was have a conversation with a friend, family member or a client and I realized that my wounds were quite small compared to others.  The common thread was that everyone was wanting to be well with their soul.  That they wanted so much to have love, peace and harmony.  The real question was “how do I get there”?  Everyone has their own path of getting there.  Unfortunately some search for it their whole life and never get there.  I know that I absolutely do not have the answers, but know that I have spent a great deal of time just talking with God and praying for Him to show me the path he wanted me to be on.  It took choosing love over fear.  It took forgiving others, but most of all forgiving myself.  It took learning how to live without so many expectations.  To see the blessing in each person and situation.  It took most of all turning off my head and just letting love be love in its own way.  It took time to allow myself to just be at peace with who I was and what all life has to offer.  To allow some friends to get close, but then not hold on so tight when they were ready to go off on their own journey without me. 

The path can be full of twists and turns and hard to navigate, but when you allow God to lead you along the way, you will get to the place of where you can truly say “IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL”!
