JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 249 :: rising strong

12 Sep


I just started listening to the audio version of Brené Brown’s book Rising Strong. And while I feel like I could probably write my own personal account on this topic, having survived three cancer diagnosis by the age of 40, I also know there is so much more to learn on how to rise and stay strong … and be blissful in the aftermath. 

I’m fascinated by this statement from the book:  “The middle is messy but it’s where the magic happens.”

Because I agree.

Everything messy that I have ever had to deal with always turned out better than I could have ever expected. There was always a lesson. There was always a purpose. It was in the sticking through, leaning into the mess, that led to the light.

And that makes me wonder…. does Bliss have to always come at the end of the story? Whether it’s the prince in shining armor, the gold at the end of the rainbow, or the happily ever after?

Or can Bliss just come along for the ride too?

More tomorrow.
