I love the image of the monkey bars as a metaphor for moving forward. You can stay where you are by gripping tightly to the bars, or you can let go and trust that the next bar is within your grasp. Each time you let go a little more, you take another step forward. There are some things we don't have control over and if we can learn to take small, faithful steps we will eventually get to a new normal.
Today's words by C.S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia.
Healing Words is an ongoing series with the intention of once a day shifting focus away from suffering and onto healing. Healing is a daily practice of listening to your inner voice and turning pain into purpose.
Please feel free to share words that have helped you heal or your thoughts on these healing words.
