thought of the day: room to wrestle

i was thinking about the people in my life who see me though. the people that know me for my good & bad & still want me. i was thinking about my hopes & dreams... my own road to becoming.

when we love & are loved with the room to wrestle through who we are becoming, it's in that place that we have the chance to grow into who we are supposed to be.  transformation happens in relationship.

this takes courage from everyone involved because life is messy. the thing is, when we get to those "other sides" & celebrate where we are vs where we where, the celebration is grand. you don't gain growth without risking a little. it's hard work, but it's good work too.

if we let it, unconditional love in a broken world changes us. i want to be the kind of person that loves until the hate is broken.
