I’m Slowly Learning How To Believe That The Best Is Yet To Come

Katy Belcher

I’m slowly learning to let the past go and focus on the present to build a better future. I’m slowly learning to let all the pain go so I can heal and attract people who can help me heal.

I’m slowly learning that history doesn’t have to repeat itself. It doesn’t have to be the same story. It doesn’t have to be the same ending because I’m growing, evolving and learning how to make better decisions. I’m stronger now. I’m wiser. I’m braver. I can create the kind of future that I want. I can envision all the blessings that I didn’t think I deserved.

I’m slowly learning that the longer you wait, the better things will be. When God tests your patience so much and tests how much you can handle, he’s preparing you for the ultimate prize. The ultimate gift. The ultimate reward.

I’m slowly learning that life is going to be full of surprises and moments that take your breath away. It’s going to work itself out. It’s going to give you even more than what you asked for because I’ve seen that happen. I’ve seen dreams coming true and miracles happening and people healing. I’ve seen broken people find love and lonely people find their own home. I’ve seen people find themselves after being lost for years. I’ve seen people rise after the most brutal fall. I’ve seen people smile again after crying a river.

I’m slowly learning that we were never promised an easy life and we weren’t given the tools to figure out how to make it easier but we can teach ourselves how to survive, we can choose to see the silver lining when life gets hard.

I’m slowly learning that if we open our hearts to the possibility that we can turn our lives around, see the light at the end of the tunnel and believe in magic like we’re ten again, we’ll find it. We’ll change our lives. We’ll cast a spell on our lives and find the magic that transforms everything.

I’m slowly learning that maybe it’s not another cliché, maybe we are supposed to leave all the bad things behind us because the best things are yet to come.
Maybe what we thought were ‘the best days’ were not and we’re on our way to live the most wonderful days of our lives. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
