Dash of Sass: Changes & Transitions
I found this quote of mine on another quote page and wanted to share it with you guys today because I feel strongly that this is a season of transition, not just for me but for lots of people. Someone told me yesterday: “I get excited when I see people who are broken because I know the size of the breakthrough that’s coming” and that really inspired me. I don’t know what you’re going through today, but I just wanted to encourage you that whatever you’re walking through, there IS another side. There IS an ending to the confusion and hurt and fear and stress. The sun WILL shine again. Things will make sense again. Maybe not now, in the midst of the struggle or the shake-up…but someday soon. And all the stuff you are contending with right now will someday be looked back upon as the very circumstances that made you stronger, and better, and more empathetic toward other people who are walking in the shadows. So keep going. Let your arms fall and stop trying to hold all the pieces together. Maybe it’s okay if it all falls apart. Or maybe it’s not falling apart at all. Maybe the broken pieces are just being built into a stronger foundation. Sending you love and prayers today…wherever you are, and whatever transitions or storms you are currently walking through.
I need to read this every day. It inspires me to know “this too shall pass!” I know that God is with me on this journey and there could be no greater love than that!
Thank you so much for this words… really from de bottom of my heart…
These words are for me completely right now at this moment in my life, I am going thru a lot of things, but I know that this year is a year of change a HUGE CHANGE in my life, in my mind, in my heart, in my soul, in everything.
God bless you, let me tell you that your example is an inspiration for me.

U change my life everyday. Thank you.
HUGS! xo, Mandy
Thank you, Mandy, for your encouragement.
Thank you. I really needed those words today. God bless!
I don’t usually comment on these sites, but felt i had to. I have been divorced for just under 2 years, it was a mutual decision but it’s still a very hard thing to go through. Last week I was on a cruise with my daughter (her senior trip with her best friend and her mom) and towards the end of the trip- sitting by the pool with about 8 “new friends” we had met during the week, I had this overwhelming feeling of happiness. After years of trying to make everything OK and walking on eggshells, making the difficult decision to divorce, worrying about my teenage daughters, I am finally at that place I’m supposed to be! I had forgotten what it felt like to be happy! Everything you wrote above is so true-we just need the courage and strength to trust that everything will be OK. And it’s amazing how when let go of the negative- all the positive things and people come back into your life!
This was right on time.
God bless you richly. A view of great Hope in every situation
After so much heartache in the past few weeks, after all my tears I woke up to this n I loved it
Hi Mandy. I am a guy and I know that this website is basically for women. But to be honest, I read your blogs a lot because i need a daily dose of inspiration. I believe that regardless of gender, everyone shares the same feeling, emotions, struggles at some points in our lives. that is why i can relate to all you’re posts. And for this particular one, this got me, big time, thank you for reminding me that there IS another side for this road I’m walking through right now. Thank you for reminding me that en though I think I’m falling apart, there is an end to every confusion, to every sorrow, and to every hurt and fear. Maybe God really is shaking me right now to relocate me to a better place, which I deserve. Thank you for the love and prayers, Mandy. Thank you for your dash of sass. Sending you my love from the Philippines. 🙂
I love when guys read my blog! Thank you for your kind words 🙂 xo, Mandy
Thank you Mandy. Having a bad day and feel so hurt and confused and stressed. I’m so tired of being hurt and just want to move on. I know and believe my breakthrough is coming soon. I don’t see a way out but I know God has the way out for me already and that He’s bringing me somethint greater than what I could’ve ever expected or make happen myself. Not focusing on the hurt is hard, but I won’t give up. Just going to let God fix my brokeness. Thank you so much for your encouraging words! ^^
Darn right its a season for change! My “one little word” for 2015 is “chance” and with that I’ve got a trip to chile and peru scheduled for this summer! And my parents (who employ me) are selling their business next week, so lots is changing, and I cannot wait to see all the ways God will touch these changes.
If God didn’t make changes in our lives, we wouldn’t reach for new opportunities and a better life. He makes us uncomfortable in order to get our attention and to trust His guidance in our lives. I am so thankful for the changes in my life, even though they were difficult in the moment. I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
Wow…I needed to hear that today. Thank you!
You’ve ready encourage me. MY CHANGE IS NOW
Wow this was so for me. Tanx
I am totally in the middle of this right now. So needed to hear this.
Thank you Mandy
Thanks for letting me know it’s ok that everything fell apart, and that I’m not weak for not being able to hold it all together!! Onward and upward…
Mandy, thanks for the kind words of encouragement.
I should really read you blog more often just a dose of inspiration every morning would suffice. its hard to stay positive and keep it togeth
er all the time. I was the happiest person I knew then everything just went down south. love life family life the motivation for studies. i just turned into this sad angry rude nonchalant apathetic depressed person. just sad and angry and completely broken. I pray to God everyday to take it away and fill me with love joy and peace. I’m just hoping for my breakthrough to come soon. I don’t want to feel this negativity anymore. tired
Keep fighting, Nay! Your breakthrough is on its way. Many prayers, Mandy
Your blog has been where I would go to almost every single day because you make me realize that I am not all alone and no battle that does not end except it may not end today.
I love your spirit-lifting writings, which I believe those writings indeed have helped many people including myself to try to accept life as is and have faith in the future.
Thank you, Mandy!
Just in time, when am down and out! Thank you soo much! This hurt, confusion, mess shall too pass cos we serve an amazing God #thankful
Just joined this blog am from Zambia in southern Africa and just want to say how am already appreciating your words of encouragement. Am going through a lot right now in my love life my job but why I know for sure is that all this will come to pass my God is in total control. And stumbling upon your blog via Twitter has been a blessing already and it’s not even 24 hrs yet since I discovered this site. Am so excited to read all your posts one at a time and really take my time in absorbing all the words. I know it won’t be easy to go through all this but it will be worth it because of the better me that will triumphantly come out of this story. Thank you Mandy
