That’s Gonna Leave a Mark!

Everyone has experienced something in their life that has left a mark. Something that will stay with them for their entire life. Am I saying that there is no way to get over certain events? Yes and no. Let me explain. If you have something bad happen to you, there is no way of knowing who you would be had that event never taken place. You are now changed by this event. There is only now.  There’s no going back.

You go on living and you heal. You do not let anger or pain plague you. But it does stay with you. Somewhere inside, it is always with you. It’s now a thread in the fabric that you’re made of. This isn’t a bad thing. It just is. The body, the soul, the mind remembers.

Change is one thing in this life that is certain. We live, we learn, we grow and we change. I have had many things occur in my life that have made me question, WHY? But when I look back at everything as a whole, I have come up with this conclusion: Every single bad thing that I have ever endured, built me. Strengthened me. I might not have had the strength to have endured some things had I not already endured others. Each mark left on me, acted as building blocks. Pain can make one resilient.

Many blessings!

  1. Inspiring post, Laura 🙂 I love the mixture of humour and serious.

    Have you ever read that Chinese story about the Blessing in Disguise. I found it very useful for dealing with life’s ups and downs – you just never know when a curse will be a blessing and a blessing will be a curse, and it can change as you keep going. With hindsight in particular you can see how a difficult life event led to something amazing.
