History has been a witness to the number of times the human race has resurrected itself at various junctures. Every time we have done so, greatness has been achieved.
We are destined for greatness
Greatness is not birthed in the absence of challenge but in response to it.
We tend to protect ourselves
Our scars are a reminder of where we have been. However, they do not have any control over our future. The opportunity for greatness often comes disguised as adversary.
With our in built fight or flight mechanism, we often end up fighting to come out victorious.
Adversary in the form of disease, extended durations of unease or medications, divorce, loss of a spouse, parent, pet etc. often leave us in despair. And many a times we feel like giving up. We tend to hide our scars, weather they may be mental or physical. We build a protective wall around us, which unknowingly take away the humane element; our pursuit to raise above and become inaccessible to any situation or anyone that can hurt us again.
Scars are milestones in the journey of life
We need to remind ourselves, that our scars are the testimony to what we have been through and how we have succeeded over the situation. They are the milestones in the journey of our lives and not the destinations. They can often be the turning points that make us pivot 360°, changing our perspectives completely. And while some scars take longer than others, in the end they all heal.
While situations could sometimes be overwhelming, we need to take heed that we are not alone in the journey.
Help is always available to us – even in our bleakest and most challenging moments – if we open our hearts to it. And when we do, we set miracles in motion.
There are millions of others who are going through similar situations and have overcome them successfully. We must draw from their experiences and examples instead of wanting to give up. Time is the best healer and courage is the best medicine.
Learn and evolve
Adversary is a difficult teacher, but if we choose to learn the lesson and move on, we have evolved. Once the lesson is learnt, the situation automatically changes. Just as the magnificent butterfly transforms from a timid caterpillar into its beautiful self, we must have the faith to put behind the experience and draw from the learnings.
Once we manage to accomplish that, miracles have to manifest to resurrect us and transform us into something much more magnificent than we could ever imagine. The quantum leap of faith, teamed up with courage and positivity will always see us through.
While No one can escape scars, true resurrection takes place once we learn to embrace them and wear them gracefully!
