Within each painful crack lies a sneak preview of the understanding yet to come. When we finally crack open, each piece of understanding we’ve gained reveals its whole meaning. This isn’t to make light of the many difficult things we are going through or have in the past. It gives a chance along the way to find hope and meaning. For who wants to crack their shell open only to find it empty, as if everything we went through was for nothing.
There is always an understanding waiting to be reveled even if it seems minuet. “The little things? The little moments? They aren’t little.” John Zabat said. Everything matters. However, if we let our hurt, bitterness, and an unforgiving heart stand in the way. Then the painful cracking will continue hurting us, and we’ll never come to understand why.
