Ruin Can Save Your Life

Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation.

Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray Love

Ain’t it though?

You must tear it all down sometimes when you’ve come to the end of the road, the end of the line, the end of your rope.

And once it’s all torn down (or all fallen down around you) , you can begin again.

But you must first have the courage to take it all down and throw it all away (aka let it all go)… The courage to do ‘nothing’ while this is happening… The courage to have ‘nothing’ while this is happening… The courage to simply be while this is happening, not having any idea who you are in this new space of ‘nothing’…

Remember, we are all “powerful beyond measure.” As Marianne Williamson said, and Nelson Mandela quoted her, we are far more than we realize we are, and sometimes, we are far more than we are willing to be. So tearing down what you’ve built might be the path less traveled, and it can also be… the one most honored.

What could life be if we could see ruin as a perfect path? And not the ‘sh%#’ that happened when we weren’t paying attention… What could life be if we welcomed ruin like an old friend, instead of resenting the day we first met it?

Then maybe we wouldn’t have to pull our hair out… or maybe we could just be okay with our newly bald head. This isn’t just the notion of a Silver Lining. But if it was, what would be wrong about that?!

Being a Fierce Purveyor of Bliss means I seek out ways of being transparent to reveal all I've learned of this human experience, and I continue to discover grace and splendor in places they are least found. This is my Bliss exposed.
