Today’s Five minute Friday word is {SMALL}


Taking small steps of sureness is more healing than taking big steps of uncertainty. That is what I truly believe.

I didn't always believe that ... I always wanted to get to the next part of my journey as fast as I could. I wanted to get there now... but over time, time has shown me that when I slow down and take small steps, I learn along the way, I heal differently, I gather more strength healing in the small steps in front of me.

it's not easy when you want to get to a place of feeling good "right now" .. and sometimes there are times I want to run so fast forward, taking big leaps and bounds just to get out of how I am feeling... but healing is truly found in the many small steps of pain, and in those small steps of pain is more understanding, and when we understand something, we learn and heal from it.

My therapist always tells me "this is not the resting place of where you will stay, these small spaces that you sit and rest in is where the healing is happening".

taking small steps and sitting in a small spaces is the key to moving towards big healing!

be patient

be kind with yourself

be accepting of the place you're in

be open to all that is around you no matter how hard it is

be who you need to be

take small steps towards the bigness of who God intended you to be
