Is your life under construction?
“March, the interior finishing’s not done yet. We can’t move in just yet. 🙁
I remember how my sister and I were a bit disappointed at that time.
We thought we could already move to our new home. (Oh well, the unit’s not mine. It’s my sister’s!) 😉
We were definitely at the peak of excitement then.
But it turned out, the unit had to go through interior finishing still.
That was 4 months ago.
How time flies…
It seems like it was only yesterday.
And finally, the turnover!!
As a protocol, we had to be there to inspect before they give us the key.
And I have to tell you, I was awestruck! I was impressed with their attention to detail.
It is a thing of beauty!
It’s kinda funny how this bare piece of property used to look like 4 months ago…
The flooring was rough. The ceiling was rugged. The rooms had patches in them.
To put it in simpler words…It doesn’t look homey.
But hey, that was 4 months ago!
“Oh common March, you knew it was going to look just fine once they finish everything.”
I know, right?
But because we were very eager to move at that time, it was hard for me to imagine. (forgive my impatience 😀 )
…that in months time, things will eventually look just fine.
And true enough, it did!
Sometimes it’s easy to appreciate things when they look awesome, would you agree?
Have you ever felt the same way in your life?
Do you feel like life is hard on you?
It’s easy to love your situation when they look just fine.
But it’s hard to feel good when you have to patch things up.
…when you have to mend the broken pieces of your life.
The sleepless nights. The pain. The sweat you have to endure.
It’s hard to feel homey when things are rough.
But as cliche as it may sound…
You have your life under construction!
You have to deal with the rough edges.
You have to put through the grind.
You have to put in the hard work.
You have to go through the pain of construction.
Trusting that one day, it will all look just fine. (Know that while I’m telling you this, I’m also preaching this to myself. )
You just got to hold that vision and trust the process.
Will you trust the process?
Trust me, you’ll soon see the masterpiece.
Think you’re alone?
Nope, we’re in this together.
Journeying with you,
