You know what happens when you plant a seed?
You put it in the dark, in dirt.
Then it gets some moisture and it starts to rot.
Yep, it starts to rot.
From there that little seed begins to sprout new life.
It does not sit there whimpering "Why does this always happen to me? Am I being punished? Am I unworthy?" No it is not whimpering. It starts sprouting.
Can you believe it?
Then, even after all that work of sprouting, sometimes that seed's first leaves are encumbered and burdened with the seed casing. Oof, seriously? But that does not stop that little seedling from pushing upward toward its fullness. And that little seed also sends its roots down, claiming its space, its right to exist and flourish.
So next time you feel like you're buried, burdened or overwhelmed, next time you just feel rotten or worthless, see if you can imagine that you are exactly where you need to be so you can sprout and grow into an even more magnificent you. Push your way toward the warmth of the Light. (Think positive thoughts.)
You can do this!
Live the extraordinary life you deserve.
