We all attempt to build our lives. Keyword: attempt. As if constructing a building, we spread out our love, sprinkle it with dreams and hopes, and like a piece of toast, out pops our perfect vision. Unfortunately, as much as I’d want things to be that way, and to have everything just the way you want it, sometimes it breaks. Maybe not your entire life, but portions of it. Come on, it’s happened to you. I know that’s definitely true for me. In some ways, we are all a little bit broken, but if we embrace and accept our brokenness instead of fighting it, it might work out for us. It might make us better.
