Life doesn’t always go in a straight line.
Things get messy and tangled.
And our paths twist and turn in many directions.
The right things happen at the wrong time and opportunities get passed by.
Some things happen that we just cannot understand in the moment no matter how badly we want an answer.
And some things that we wish would happen just never do.
Life can be a little messy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be wonderful.
Because even in the messiness, even in the mistakes and missed chances, even in the midst of not knowing what to do or where to turn, there are still so many beautiful moments.
There is still love and joy and light.
There is still laughter and kindness.
So maybe life is messy.
But maybe, it doesn’t need to be anything else.
Maybe it’s in all of the messiness that we can see all of the things that matter most of all.
(Not my words.)
