There have been times that my hope has wavered. Times that I questioned whether I deserved a soul mate. Times when I questioned God’s timing. But I still cling to hope. Yes, cling – for dear life to that hope. Afraid of what might happen if I completely lose my grip.
The times we seem to question it the most is right after a breakup. Why does this keep happening? Why can’t I find my soul mate? Does he even exist? I thought so-and-so was the one, why?
I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. ~Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn may not have been a philosopher but there is so much wisdom in this quote. How can we ever make room for the good things if we’re holding on to the bad things? How can your heart be open for Mr. Oh-so-right if you’re still carrying the baggage of Mr. Oh-heck-no?
Drop that baggage, girl! Let him walk out and walk away. If he was the right one, he’d hold on tight and never let you go. That’s the one we’ve been waiting for. The one who knows we are worth holding on to.
I am too.
