Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place…
She spent good money on the outfit, spent her last $50 on a new pair of shoes. She had her hair and nails done, spent 30 minutes putting on her makeup. When she got there, she spent the entire evening sitting in the corner, half smiling, half holding back the tears. On the outside she looked beautiful. On the inside she felt worthless.
So many of us invest a fortune making ourselves look good to the world, yet on the inside we are falling apart. We manage to muddle through life saying and doing the right things, but when we’re alone, we cry silent and desperate tears. It is time to pause and heal the inside. It is time to heal the hurts, mend the fences, dig up the hatchets and throw them away. It is time to heal the doubts, answer the questions and release the fears. It is time to invest some time to what is going on inside. When we can do that, the outside will shine.
