The Beautiful Mess We Call Life!

Sometimes I get really frustrated with myself when I bake, although I enjoy it I usually end up with a mess, yet the end result of the delicious mouth watering yumminess that comes from the oven is all worth it.
What if we looked at life like that?
What if we allowed ourselves to see our lives as a work in progress and be okay with that?
What if we didn't define ourselves by the mess we sometimes find ourselves in but rather what it was producing inside of us?
What if the mess was indication of a greater picture something we don't see immediately but rather a process of movement towards something beautiful and something to be enjoyed?
What if in the midst of the mess we could still lean into the process and move forward without getting discouraged and quitting?
What if after that momentary mess was cleaned up we could enjoy the deliciousness that is our lives and see, taste and acknowledge the beauty that this moment and this life holds!!
Life is a series of mess after mess and
I think it's time for all of us to stop, take a deep breath, remind ourselves that what we see and what we are experiencing is not the end of our story but only a part of it.
Sometimes we just need to embrace the next second, the next breath, the next step forward, the next moment for these moments make up our lives and we don't want to miss out on this big beautiful mess we call life, do we?!
You are precious every single moment of every single day whether you believe it or not!!!
And now I will enjoy that cookie.....
You friends!! ❤️
