It is never what we expect. It is never what it seems. But it always places us exactly where we need to be.
Life never is, nor will it ever be, what we expect. It throws us for loops, spins us around, lifts us up, and drops us down. But no matter the loops it has thrown you through, no matter the chaos it ensues, fill yourself with gratitude.
Be completely in awe of exactly where you are.
Give thanks for your life exactly as it is, exactly where you are, with all of its strength and all of its flaws. Know that no matter how confusing it may seem, you are exactly where you need to be.
Give thanks for every breath, every step, as you place one foot in front of the next.
Embrace life in its present place, whatever shape it decides to take.
