Dear Becoming Girl,
Sometimes we choose to change, and sometimes our experiences change us. Whether we choose the changes or not, we are always becoming.
We are always learning, we are always moving toward the next part of our lives. We are evolving and richening and wising up. We are developing a gorgeous soul patina.
Difficult and painful things happen that leave us different than we ever were…and sometimes that feels cruel and strange. But really, beautiful friend, these changes always end up being good and necessary because they all help us to become even more of who we are….the beautiful, pure, lovely, complicated, phenomenal soul that we are under all of this other stuff.
Between where we were and where we are headed is a place right in the middle that might make us feel lost and awkward….and sometimes it lasts for such a long time that we forget that where we are headed is exactly where we want to be, but that this is the road that leads there. We mustn’t forget that there is sometimes pain and struggle in the becoming…there is sometimes confusion and dark days…but that still, we are becoming….
…and it will be worth it.
You are beloved, becoming soul. You are so very beloved.
Never stop….keep on becoming.
