"You must be willing to lose it all before you can have it all. What does that mean? It means that until you can let go of everything, you will find it hard to hold onto anything." - Neale Donald Walsch
I saw this quote on my Facebook feed this morning.
It really took me aback. I was immediately flooded with emotion when I read that while sipping my morning coffee. I stopped scrolling nonchalantly down my feed as I normally do each morning before work,
and I nearly lost my breath.
This. Is. So. True.
It speaks to our life so much right now I can't even get over it! Our move to Arizona has been a rather hard one, for both Adam and myself. For Adam, he has never uprooted himself and moved anywhere outside of New England. For me, it was difficult to live here for college, and then have to move back to ultimately just have to say goodbye to my mom. We had to start all over again. It has been exhausting. But this morning, it really hit me reading that quote that although this a tough time for us financially and emotionally, the payout will be so, SO damn rewarding. Adam just started his new job, which he seems to like so far! I am almost an entire year with my job at Apple, and we are finally starting to make our apartment feel more like our home each day.
I hope that you can take this quote and find some peace with it.
I sure know I have!
