Your pain is showing you which way to go.

One day, she felt a shift. She ripped open her wounds, released the weight of her tears, and cleared a path for the pain, heartache, grief, disappointment, and sadness to leave.

As the anguish flowed away, she gave thanks, as she knew without the ache of it all, she would never have found the path to her place, her peace, her light or, herself.

Her pain had come with a purpose and, she was grateful. She exhaled, smiled, made coffee, booked a trip to Italy, then picked up her notebook, went to the beach and life began again.

~ Your pain and discomfort has a purpose. Its pointing you towards healing, new opportunities and new ways of “being.”

Its helping you see who and what really matters. And sweet, darling soul, it’s you, you’re what matters.

Pain can be a beautiful teacher~

We learn more during life’s painful moments and challenges, than we learn in our moments of glory.

Each stabbing ache, each crushing disappointment, each heartbreak, every loss or painful fall from grace, allows us an opportunity to grow and become stronger.

Whether it’s emotional or physical; pain forces us to slow down, rest and take the time we need to heal.

Getting knocked down isn’t always a bad thing. Pain can leave us humbled, wiser and more patient. It allows us to lower our veil, be vulnerable, more tolerant and compassionate towards the pain we see or even cause, in others.

Sometimes pain itself is the cure for the things in life that hurt us; as it slows us down long enough to evaluate what and who is important.

When pain knocks on your door, let it in, sit with it. Let it show you what it wants you to see, to learn or to grow into.

Pain always, ALWAYS, brings with it opportunities for transformation. Opportunities to wrap yourself in your cocoon, and when you’re ready, to emerge with greater clarity about who you are, what’s important, why you’re here and how you want to live, love, play and BE.

Pain can be a beautiful teacher. Don’t waste your pain on “the pain” use this opportunity as a stepping stone to chart the next chapter of your journey.

Your pain will hurt you, it will also help, heal and lead you.
