Beautiful things take time

Beautiful things take time. Beautiful things take time. I know it’s hard to watch so many others come into their bloom and you are wondering when beautiful things will find their way to you, but I promise you, there is so much more to you. If only you could see what Light was doing within you, all the way down to your roots. I hope you can begin to trust that just because you cannot see it, that does not mean you cannot believe it. You can still have hope in this season of unknowns. You have not been forgotten here. You have not been looked over. Sure, it is taking a little longer, but this is a part of you growing stronger, so you will be prepared to bloom in the way you were meant to.

Beautiful things take time. Beautiful things take time. And you will be fine. Not perfect, but fine. You are going to continue to breathe through this. You are going to grow through this. You are going to look back on days like this and realize that even in the waiting, you were growing in the way you were meant to. Even in the waiting, you were learning what you were meant to learn. So much changed around you but you changed too. You may have missed out on a few things you thought you were going to be a part of, but you did not miss out on your growth. You did not miss out on what was meant for you and you were still free to bloom.

The heartbreak did not define you. The disappointment did not write the story. The times you fell did not keep you from being led right where you needed to be. This season of life has proven to be much harder than what you were expecting, but it has also proven that you are stronger than you ever thought you would be...and this is all a part of what makes you beautiful in a unique and meaningful way. This is the proof that all along, you have been blooming, even as you wait.

Sincerely,

Morgan Harper Nichols
