“God changes caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls and coal into diamonds using time and pressure. He’s working on you, too.” ~Rick Warren
Change using time and pressure. I love this. Who are we but the graduation of our former selves; shaped by the experiences we’ve had? I know my teenage self would hardly recognize me at (almost) 35. I do believe that to jump ahead and see myself at 40–the landscape will be completely different.
We’re all on our way; with a destination unfixed. Giving into that and accepting change as it happens is probably one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. When you get the feeling you are stuck, just give it a little time and grace.
