go.

i am grateful for donald miller and his wise words that explain exactly how i feel about my life right now. thanks donny-o for putting my thoughts into words on paper.

thank you, thank you, thank you.

it might be time for you to go. it might be time to change, to shine out.

i want to repeat one word for you:

leave.

roll the word around on your tongue for a bit. it is a beautiful word, isn’t it? so strong and forceful, the way you have always wanted to be. and you will not be alone. you have never been alone. don’t worry. everything will still be here when you get back. it is you who will have changed.

. . .

and so my prayer is that your story will have involved some leaving and some coming home, some summer and some winter, some roses blooming out like children in a play. my hope is your story will be about changing, about getting something beautiful born inside of you, about learning to love a woman or a man, about learning to love a child, about moving yourself around water, around mountains, around friends, about learning to love others more than we love ourselves. we get one story, you and i, and one story alone. it would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn’t it?

  1. Amen. It’s hard, but we would stagnate if we didn’t.
