#reverb10 - Day 24 - Everything's OK

December 24 Prompt – Everything’s OK.  “What was the best moment that could serve as proof that everything is going to be alright? And how will you incorporate that discovery into the year ahead?” 
(Author: Kate Inglis)

Everything is okay. I learned that long ago. And even when a particular moment is not okay, I know that it will be. Everything is always as it should be. Everything is always as it is meant to be. While I cannot always find a reason for something, I know that there is always a purpose. I will come to understand that purpose when I am supposed to.

Throughout my life I have had experiences that could have ultimately crushed me as they threw me--splat!--against a concrete wall. Somehow, although I have been knocked down a few times too many for my liking, felt like I’ve had my head bashed in and had the life strangled right out of me (oh, wait, that almost did happen)…I’m still here. I’m still growing. I’m still learning. I’m still becoming who I am meant to become. I am who I am because of these experiences. As difficult as they have been and as challenging as they have sometimes made life to live…I’m still here

…and relatively sane.

From the mist and fog of trauma and pain I have awoken to discover that I must first trust myself. No matter what happens, I must trust that I will survive. I will be okay. Everything will work out.

It always does.
