Sometimes life feels heavy. Sometimes it gets weary. Do you feel like you are carrying around some heavy buckets filled with a lot of things that hurt and hold you back and make life overwhelming?
What if we can remember that we do not need to carry around everything? Carrying so much around makes us hurt and ache. It makes us weary. It makes life so very tiring. It’s ok to set things down and keep walking. It’s ok to look towards light and love, grace and hope and joy.
I have wasted so much time in my life carrying around things that I was just sure were going to eventually have a great resolution that would leave me feeling better about it. I have found more peace in realizing that the one moment of ultimate resolution I was waiting for may never happen and that I should not build my life and reltationships around that one moment. There has been so much more love, joy, and hope in my life since I have been able to set down some of my heavy buckets. My shoulders were tired and aching and my heart was so heavy it had to break into a million pieces to allow light in again. Life can always get better. So much better. Let’s stop carrying so much around. Let’s look for light and love and other things that are a joy to carry with us.
