The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass – May 10, 2011

Quote of the Day:

“Someday you’re gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You’ll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing…” ~Elizabeth Gilbert

The Single Woman Says:

What are you grieving today? The loss of a relationship? A job? A friendship? Your self worth?

I’m here to tell you that walking through heartbreak is walking on SACRED ground, and never are you in a better position to learn more about WHO YOU REALLY ARE than while waiting on a wound to become a scar.

Bad things are going to happen. People are going to betray you. People are going to walk away. Seasons of your life are going to end, without warning. It’s not gonna be right and it’s not gonna be fair…but here are your choices: Grow BITTER or grow BETTER.

Breakups have a way of shaking us awake and helping us see what we really want vs. what we are willing to settle for. There will come a day when you will look back and thank God that this person or opportunity was removed from your life, because you would have never found YOU if you hadn’t lost THEM.

When we are transitioning from one season of life to the next, life has a way of removing the people and situations from our lives that don’t belong there. Not everyone is meant to make it to the promised land with us. And that’s okay.

If you’re in a season of heartbreak right now, I encourage you to pull out the confetti and CELEBRATE, because on the other side of that broken heart is a brand new start. Right now, this very moment, is a defining moment in your life, so face it, embrace it…and watch your wounds turn into wisdom…and your trials turn into treasure.
