I thought I would spice things up and choose one or two life-affirming quotes to post every week with a little life lesson to go along with them. Quotes that are resonating with me and what I am currently experiencing on my journey through life, but also quotes that will resonate with all. And the quote I have chosen for today will require us all to think over our own life experiences, and possibly even our own life choices. So, without any further ado, let’s get to it.
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.— Anne Bradstreet
I chose this quote because I am currently experiencing significant changes in my life. Changes that require me to buck the system, turn my back on the system and put my trust and faith into myself, my intuition and the Creator. And it may sound easy to do this, but let me tell you, I am finding out that it is not. I have been so full of anxiety, fear and worry over everything. I am afraid of falling flat on my face. I am afraid of not living up to my potential. I am afraid that I will not reach my goals. And I am deathly afraid that all of my negative and traumatic experiences will be for naught. But I have to reflect on the positives and stray from the negatives. All of my adverse experiences have led me to the beautiful Divine being that I am today. They have taught me that fear and lack are illusions, and that I truly love me and that no one else could ever give me the love that I can give myself. But also, that if I want security in my life that I am the only one that can provide it for myself.
My dark times have taught me to be humble, to always have open communication with the Creator and to trust in myself. But to also always give, because there is always someone experiencing a dark winter than yours. My winter moments have taught me how strong I am. How creative and resilient I am. How, even in the darkest times, I still rise. They have taught me that winters never last very long if I maintain my connectedness with the Creator and Spiritual realm and maintain being grateful and full of gratitude for all that I have. And I am grateful. Grateful to have DearSpence. Grateful to have a source of income. Grateful for spiritual books. Grateful for waking up every day and having the opportunity to try. Grateful for the amazing beings that reach out for help. Grateful for the amazing beings I have met because of DearSpence.
But I am truly grateful for the spring that comes along after the darkness. I always feel so rejuvenated and full of life and love for myself, others and the Creator. But I also have so much more Divine knowledge within me that I am able to share with others. Others that are maybe lost in their own winter. So, to all of you experiencing your own winter or having already come through your own winter, I stand with you! I acknowledge your pain and your fear and the beautiful, amazingly strong beings you are because of that cold, dark winter. I wish you all well on your journeys to come and just remember that every winter gives way to a spring! Wishing you all peace, love, and happiness.
