What If Your Worst Times Take You to Your Best

Sometimes life can hit us with some awful stuff, but that doesn't mean the path it's taking us on is going to turn out awful.

Life can take us to places we don’t want to be in, with no sight of making our way out of whatever hell we are in. Our lives don’t always get to be happy and joyful. Sometimes life hits us with a bunch of awful and horrific things that we don’t even know how to handle. Some things in life can come out of nowhere and leave a shock to our system, that we aren’t even sure we can recover from. We lose someone we didn’t think we could live without, we get an illness we feel too young to have, or we keep failing at our dreams when we have given them our all. But, what if the hell that life throws down in front of us, is eventually taking us to a heaven we can only dream of ?

Our lives can feel unfair and awful , without us feeling like things will get better. It may be years of things going wrong without us feeling like there is any positive meaning behind what’s happening to us. But, truthfully there is meaning in every minute of our lives if we look. Life is always showing us pieces of ourselves that we don’t know exist, until we go through pain that shows us a different layer of ourselves. Life will create suffering, to show us what we truly need in life. Pain can hit us harder than ever, to show us how strong we truly are. And life can leave us feeling completely alone, to shown us all we need to do is to love ourselves more. Whatever it is that has hit you and knocked you down, just know that there is always a comeback to your knockdown.

A comeback is the moment that is perceived to happen after our biggest failures and most disastrous times. Without disaster and pain, the comeback would not be able to arrive. Our biggest failures and pain make us into the person that deserves the comeback. Our best self can’t arrive without the pain to carve us out into the diamond that we are meant to become. We can’t shine fully or be our best without understanding what truly matters to us on a deeper level.

The best of us can only be shown by peeling back the layers of who we are and what we think we are suppose to be. So, take a listen to what you heart is telling you when your in pain or after you have gone through some suffering. Is your pain telling you to write a book, take piano lessons, or open a business…if so you better listen. You biggest pain is trying to take you to the other side of  hell, which is your personal heaven . So, open your heart and your mind to where your pain is going to take you. Have hope and know that the universe creates pain to eventually get you to your heaven. And your biggest comeback is waiting right around the corner, if your open to receiving it.
