But just when things feel like they're never going to go "my way" again, something happens to highlight the preciousness of it all. As if God came through and highlighted a single line on the page of my life to show me what was right before me.
Highlighting the part that is worth fighting through the tough stuff.
Highlighting the part that is never crummy, no matter the situation.
Highlighting the essence of life... purpose.
Life doesn't always go to plan, following the straight and clear route that it "should." It winds and drifts, taking detours along the way. Introducing us to new people and places and experiences. Changing us along the way.
That process can be exciting... or frustrating... or scary... depending on the day and what's at stake.
What doesn't change is the purpose. Keeping that purpose... essence... in full and clear view is the tough part... but the part that is never crummy, no matter the situation and at the end of it all, it's what we cherish most.
