The Best is Yet to Come

I had a conversation the other day where I challenged someone to describe the good that came from a recent and devastating break-up (I know, you’re shocked, right?).

Part of her response-

I love knowing that my best and happiest love is yet to come. I have that to look forward to.

She actually made me speechless with that assessment. In all my years of dissecting out every little scrap of good from my horrific divorce, this was one benefit I never unearthed. And yet, as soon as I heard it, I felt it.

And she’s right.

 

It’s so easy to grasp onto what was rather than hold hope for what can be.

It’s so easy to view the past through a rose tint and imagine that no future can ever measure up.

It’s so easy to focus on what has been lost rather than what can be gained.

It’s so easy to fill up on sadness and not leave room for smiles.

 

We zero in on what we know and what we know is the past, the pain.

Try making the belief that the best is yet to come at the center of your heart and aim your thoughts that way.

 

What I love about her words is that they focus on hope. They build excitement and anticipation. They speak of an assurance that our hearts are capable of love even after heartbreak.

The best is yet to come.

Are you ready for it?

  1. Love is always from God you will always find love as long as you live in this world. You get divorced today and get married tomorrow you just have to be happy that you had an experience in marriage and keep on trying till you get that perfect one.

  2. Thank you….I needed to read this today. I’ve been away from here for a while (summer vaca with the kids) and coming back today to catch up on the blogs brings my mind back to the present. I don’t care that my stbex is on vacation (yet ANOTHER) with her. He did some pretty awful things last night. I wish they would just move away.

      1. LOL… I just read your comment and was just thinking how much I enjoyed my 1st cup of coffee and toast from my remodeled kitchen and condo:) I was looking forward to that this morning.

        Great question – I never really thought about it from that perspective! I just kind moved on from day to day (task to task).

        I’ll think I’ll ask myself this question daily – definitely when my brain is in a twist and I feel like the walking dead…. Thanks

        1. How perfect! Coffee makes everything better:) I just did a kitchen remodel myself and I find I like to just be in the space and enjoy it!

          I am all about celebrating any little moment!! Enjoy that second cup of coffee:)
