Broken Pieces


We all have broken pieces in our lives. None of us get to escape the damage. Some of us are better than others at picking up the shattered pieces and carrying on with our lives. I am just finishing up the Brene Brown online course which is in this lesson talking about shame and how it destroys people. She talks about resilience.

In my career I have seen all kinds of staff and students who are broken. Some of them do not know how badly broken they are. Others are perfect examples of resilience and moving on with strength and courage. It is hard to know why some people move through their pain and create a gem from it while others stay stuck.

I choose resilience, trust, courage, hope and joy. What about you? Are you picking up the pieces and using them for good or are you walking on them and continuing to cut your feet and damage your soul?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
