Hurting, Broken, Bruised?

We've all dealt with heartbreak. With pain. With hurt. Whether that be something like someone close to you dying, getting a major health problem, or anything else that might cause one to hurt, it happens. I can think of millions of things that have brought me down in the past. Recently because there have been more struggles than ever I've been thinking a lot about the fact that before good things happen, there has to be at least a bit of a struggle. Want that college application? You've got to work your butt off. Want that job? You've got to rock that interview. Want to date a guy/girl? You have to get up the courage to ask that person out. Struggle happens. Whether it be big or small. But to know that something greater is ahead is one of the most amazing things to me. I do realize that we don't think about this in the moment. I sure don't in most cases. But we must truly realize this - But let me tell you. Good things happen to those who wait. That is something I believe wholeheartedly. I love this quote that summarizes this perfectly.

"There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind." 
-C.S. Lewis

So while I am not promising magic and sparkles, I do know that if you can hold your head up high during hard times, as tough as that may be, your rainbow may just be right around the corner. 

Stay Beautiful
