Broken does not mean useless

How do you pick up the broken pieces? What do you do with them? How can something that seems so invincible be so fragile? Life is hard in so many varying degrees. There are so many emotional and mental ups and downs we seem to continually face and find ourselves having to navigate. You have to pick up the pieces, salvage the strong pieces, figure out what can still be used, and start to build on that.

Beauty in the Brokeness

If we jump from one trial to the next without ever picking up the pieces and learning from our past, we become vulnerable and we get stuck.

We have to find the beauty in the chaos and make something of it. Things will happen in your life we can’t control. But, we can change the way we look at things. It’s how we decide to bear things that will decide how we continue to live our life.

Two building blocks for creating something beautiful from the mess

One of the major changes that can help us mend our lives is to become more conscious of our habits and patterns. This is because our habits are what drive most of our daily lives and the actions we take. It is often hard to see how destructive some can be until we are able to make the necessary changes.

We must also take steps to reevaluate our priorities continually. Our priorities are a living dynamic in our lives. We have the tendency to become consumed by work, school, and activities, but it’s so important to remember what’s most important in order for us to be able to focus on the better things and find the treasure in them.

The Final Picture

In times of hardship, it can be difficult to find a silver lining. It is when we are in the midst of these dark moments that we have to dig deeper and find ways to turn it into something beautiful.

What makes us human is the way that we can look at the worst moments in our lives and find a way to make them better. We have the ability within us to turn our lives around and create beauty from destruction. The only thing standing in our way is ourselves.

No matter how hard life gets, there is always room for hope and beauty – you just need to know where to look for it and how to recognize it.

Until next time,
