Today, like right now?
I’m grateful for the stuff that didn’t happen to me. I mean the relationships I wanted, the friends I wanted to keep, and even the careers that I wanted.
I wanted it for the wrong reasons! I wanted these things because I thought they would prove how worthy I was to have them. Because I wanted them so bad, I couldn’t see what it would cost me to keep them.
I didn’t know what it would cost me.
What it would demand of me.
Sometimes, the blessing is in what you don’t get.
