So this lady just came into my store, literally, like 10 minutes ago…
yes, it’s another one of those storytime MAKEMOVES|MONDAYS
She was telling me about her favorite bracelet that she recently lost.
“I think about it every single day,” she says.
Then, she pauses for a moment, looks at the ceiling, and says something that kinda breaks my heart a little…
Maybe I don’t deserve it.
To which I, in all my borderline obnoxious optimism, reply,” Maaaybe it was something beautiful that served its purpose. But, now you get to find a new one that’s just going to be like…so perfect & beautiful in a way you can’t even imagine.” Yeeah, I really said that. I don’t know where this stuff comes from. haha. I really do believe it though.
But this story isn’t just about bracelets lost – it’s about love lost, friendships lost, dreams lost…
you deserve every ounce of happiness in your life, always.
And, sometimes, shitty things happen, really fuckin earth-shattering, heart-breaking shitty things – like losing something we love. It didn’t stick around as long as you wanted it to, but maybe it stuck around as long as it needed to.
So, whatever it is you’ve lost – take the time to appreciate it in its entirety…
& let it go.
Because the thing is…YOU get to decide how long you want it to affect you negatively & when you’re going to start letting it affect you positively.
Aaand….big exhale. 🙂
Happy, happy Monday!
