this is where I run sometimes....I ran past this "gun-shot"-land...where everything from toilet seats to tv's became target practice for all kinds of ammo...and it reminded me of our dreams and hearts sometimes....
Sometimes it feels like our dreams, our hearts, our future has been shot to pieces...
Left to lay lifeless...without hope....BUT
What sometimes is even more beautiful...is the imperfection...all the holes make it more beautiful, so more light can shine through....like a beautiful piece of lace, or a beautiful sky filled with clouds...and through the holes and spaces in the clouds is where the most beautiful beams of light some shining through.
If your heart feels injured or your dreams feel dead....know that...the most amazing stories came out of things that didn't seem possible. A plant can grow out of a rock...that seems impossible!
You can plant a bamboo seed...and it looks like nothing is happening...the first year nothing happens, but the root is growing deep (that's our lives, the time we keep believing, the emotion we go through)...still above ground it looks hopeless..you'd give up on that plant that never popped up!
BUT JUST WAIT!!!!!
After that the bamboo plant can shoot up over 4 feet in 24 hours, that's almost as tall as a 10 year old!!! That's how our dreams and hearts can be....even if it looks like nothing is happening...life and everything we go through is getting us ready to "catapult" into extreme growth like the bamboo!
Keep your hopes alive and your heart and chin even higher...no matter what is going on...think of it as getting you stronger and more prepared for greatness!!!
I believe in you and love you..if no one else tells you that today! I did!
huge love, kandee
