Just in case no one has told you lately, it’s okay if you don’t have it all figured out.

Just in case no one has told you lately, it’s okay if you don’t have it all figured out. It’s okay if you are still learning how to breathe while making it through the wilderness of things.

I’m not sure what things you have been told lately or what pressure you have been made to feel, but above all of that, there is room for you to still find peace in knowing: it’s okay it’s if you’re not where you thought you would be right now. It’s okay if you’re still figuring things out when everyone else already seems to have their plans in place. The reason why this is okay is because no matter how far productivity takes you, it does not equal joy and fulfillment in life.

There’s nothing wrong with getting things done, but it’s not the way to measure your growth in life. Instead, take a look at your inner life. Take a look at the ways you have grown in patience. Notice the ways you have learned to be gentle and extend grace...even when it seemed impossible. Remember the time you did something kind and didn’t take the credit? Remember the season where you made a conscious decision to begin the journey of letting something go? No matter what things you don’t have figured out, it’s those inner things that make all of the difference, no matter what lies ahead.

Keep giving your all and making the most of everyday, but don’t think less of yourself when you have to be still and wait. It’s okay to not have it all figured out, and to still be growing in wisdom and in grace at the same time.
