monday morning encouragement: without the bad, you can’t appreciate the good

This year has been bad. Like, so many tears, tons of sad times, so much heart ache & a lot of lows. This year has been good too though. Really sweet memories, new life, greater, deeper relationships, & the highest of highs.

Life is unpredictable & pain is inevitable. Loneliness is real & brokenness is a hard thing to live in. But without the bad, you can’t appreciate the good. 

Without the journey through the valley, you don’t know the beauty of the mountaintop.

Life would be better we think if we just were happy all the time. But how do you know you’re truly happy unless you live a time when you know you were not? 

How can we apprectiate the good if we have not first lived out the bad? 

If you’re in the middle of the bad, I feel you, I’m sorry, & the good is coming I promise! 

If you’re in the middle of the good, don’t you dare forget the bad & always be grateful that you somehow made it through.

Life is an unknown journey & I’m happy that we as humans get to live the bad so that we can know the good.
