There are many pieces that make up our lives: moments that make and break us. Moments that raise and shape us. Decisions we make to hold on, or let go. People who enter our lives and leave us changed forever. The ones we love, the ones that hurt us, or heal us, or leave us. Sometimes, we don’t understand these pieces- or even despair over them. It’s only when time goes by and we look back, that we suddenly can see our whole life like a perfectly designed puzzle.
Don’t be afraid of the puzzle piece you are in now. It will fit perfectly… Just like the rest. How could it not? The designer is Perfect.
For writer’s Quote Wednesday, I decided to submit this quote I found by Yasmin Mogahed because I think it’s something we all can relate to. This life is a puzzle piece and for many of us, it seems incomplete and imperfect too. But here’s the thing, Of course it’s imperfect; life itself is an incomplete puzzle and with everyday and every challenge, the puzzle piece gets one step closer to becoming complete. I haven’t seen an incomplete puzzle piece that looks perfect too. So also life, as we go through this journey of completing our puzzle, it would seem like an imperfect one. When all is said and done, and we take a deep breath and glance back, then, we would be able to fully grasp and appreciate the perfection of it all.
On a last note, and even though this is unrelated to the quote above, I feel the need to share it; as a reminder to myself first of all, and also to everyone else who has a dream:
“If it is worth dreaming about then it is worth doing. Do not give up on your dreams“.
